Father Poem

My Dad was diagnosed with Throat Cancer in the Summer of 2007 and on March 28th of 2008 he under went a total Laryngectomy. My mother and I was there for the procedure and therefore we were the last ones to hear HIS original voice because he now has a Prosthetic voice box. I do not have to tell you that cancer is a nasty disease because we all know that it is, but I wanted to share my feelings with you through my Poem.

Man Without A Voice

©

Published: January 2009

There is a man I love
who has no voice
please let me explain
he had no choice.

Cancer is a deadly disease you see
it almost took
this man away from me.

They took his voice box and vocal
cords too
I cannot wait for this to be through.

Even though it's not his own voice
Deep in my heart I know he made the right choice.

This makes me sad
cause this man I'm telling you
about is my Dad.

My dad had the same thing but my dad was not as lucky, when they took everything out they let some of the cancer go and after about 8 months of being cancer free he went to the doc for a check up and the cancer had went to his lungs and brain. They told him there was nothing they could do. They told us that on xmas of 2007 and on Jan 16 of 2009 he was only 51 when he passed....thank you for this poem its wonderful........

Brain cancer took my dad 29 days ago (26/11/2010). He was 55, working as a teacher since October 15th, when it was diagnosed. I agree it's a nasty disease and I hate it with all my heart but I thank God my dad left this world with dignity. I hope time heals my wounds. My memories will keep him in my heart for ever.

My dad passed away in October 2009 I got a phone call to say that my dad had gone and my world come to a stop. I still feel the pain and I cry everyday and I listen to my dads music and it brings back so many happy memories. My memories of my dad live in my heart for ever and ever.
love and miss you so much dad xxxxxxxxxxxx

I loved this poem as it was so close to home to me. My father passed away with terminal cancer. It was his 66th birthday on the 28th March, still so very young. Cancer is a nasty, horrible disease especially when it happens to someone so close and who you love so much. Time is a healer but the pain never goes away and the memories will always live with you.
