Uncle Death Poem

Poem About Uncle Died From Cancer

I was 13, as I am now. My uncle got cancer. The worst disease ever. And it just got worse and worse. And as I said, It took him over, leaving not a single breath. I miss him terribly and this can only make me stronger.

My uncle was like the father I never had. He was wise, funny, kind. I can't believe he's gone. Life is so sad without him. I hope he knew I loved him dearly.

I Will Never Forget

Published: June 2011

Easy come, and easy go
It's very hard to let you go
Don't think I won't remember
Because I will never forget

It was hard to see you in that bed
The look of sadness and my dread
But you looked so peaceful, I will admit

You thought you were strong
We knew you were
But it got you
It took you over
It ate you alive
Until,
There was not a single breath
It took them all,
Not a single one left

You were so weak
We kept you strong,
So we thought,
But we were wrong

We love you and miss you
We wish you were here
But we can have only memories
And don't you think I won't remember
Because I,
I will never forget

My favorite Uncle died on 12-28-2015. It has hit me harder than any death than any other. He was my hero. He lived In S.C. and I live in OK. He was always there for me. He treated me like a daughter. His older brother, my dad did not. I have been crying so much. I love him and miss him so much. He is not in pain anymore. I am.

When I was 1 years old my uncle got custody of me and raised me like his own, he was my dad pretty much. He died in 04 and I still think about him every day and every night.
