Cancer Poem

I never had a friendship with my dad, but my friend who is older has made me more family than anyone I could think of. Today he is sick with a cancer stage 4, so this goes out to him.

Me, My Friend, And Cancer


Published: September 2011

I thought I had big problems
Until I realized your problems
Chemotherapy visits and checks
And months without an answer
Now I really feel shame and sick
My problem is nothing but a basic
I don't know how much you suffered
Or your internal been injured
You bring hot tears to my eyes
And my heart from sorrow it fries
You look healthy yet you are stage four
In the hospital out there looking for a cure
But I have faith in you now even more
You will fight the cancer and win the war
I apologize for my ignorance earlier
Going on about me when you have a cancer
My world has become broken and lost.
And the expanses your chemo most cost
Struggling abroad to make a living
Across the globe you are praying
That all this problem can be solved
Your family and friends can be involved

I have a best friend who I've known for only a year but has touched my heart. Every time I was sad and lonely she was the one that always cheered me up. But now I find out she might have cancer, I pray to God every day that she won't have it and it isn't true. But she is also moving schools as her sister is in that school to make it easier for their mum. But that means if she does have cancer I can't look after her and as she's the new girl there no one will look after her and she might end up with no friends.
Please pray for my friend wishing she doesn't have cancer xxx

I have a friend who is being hurt by her boyfriend. He just left her by saying that he is not interested in her. It's hurts her a lot and she is still loving him and crying for him. I never seen a girl who loves such a guy who left her alone in middle of relationship. She is still waiting for him but he became stone hearted and did not respond to her pain. Being as a friend to her I am feeling shame for being helpless to her. I just want to show my sorrow to her in words. Please tell me how to talk with her in present situation.

I have a best friend and she has a fatal illness and we don't know how much longer we will be together. I just know that when the time comes that I will miss her so much. All I can do is just pray and ask for strength that I need. I ask God to let me be of help and be strong for those who needs me. Please pray for Jackie an her family & me. GOD BLESS

My best friend and sister in law is losing her fight to cancer. She has fought courageously for 3 years now enduring endless trips to the hospital for chemo, infusions, etc. My heart is breaking as I see her in more pain all the time, yet she continues to fight and be strong for all around her.

You are amazing, Jeannie. We love you.
