  1. 21. Mothers Plea

    • By Kelsy Marks
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2008

    I wrote think one day while watching the snow fall, I'm not a mother myself, but I think this poem is very true, seeing as I'm 13 with cancer.

    The saddest for a mother to watch
    is her daughter
    watching the snow fall
    through a cold window pane

  2. 22. One Wish

    • By Lindsey N. Smith
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A woman prays to God to heal her sick mother and make her pain and suffering go away.

    If I had one last wish to make it would have to be,
    that God would heal my mom and give her pain to me.
    For I've never seen my mom hurt so bad in all my life,
    I'd do anything and everything to take her pain and strife.

  3. 23. A Lost Memory

    This is a true story told to me by a friend about a time she visited her mother in a nursing home where her mother lived. She said it was the worst feeling in the world to have to live through. It was so heartbreaking that I couldn't forget it. At the time she told it, all I could do was cry.

    She lovingly handles
    her mother with care
    as she washes and curls
    and fixes her hair.

  4. 24. Shell Of A Person I Once Knew

    This poem is about losing someone without them being dead. My family has suffered a lot of loss. My father passed away suddenly in 2012 from congestive heart failure. Shortly thereafter my mother became quite ill and has never been the same. When we were growing up, my mother was extremely bubbly. She was a friend to everyone she met. She is extremely limited now. Due to her extreme illness, she does not talk much anymore. She does not communicate. She lies in her bed and listens to the TV all day long. She's no longer the mother I always knew and loved.

    You're the shell of the person I once knew.
    When I talk, I know you can hear,
    But I barely feel your spirit lingering near.

  6. 26. Stay Strong

    • By Samantha
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    I am 17 years old. I have been very sick for the last 7 years. I have something called NF1, it makes you very sick at times. I go to a lot of doctors, I have had brain surgery, I can't get out in the heat it makes me really sick. The bad thing about this is my older sister is 18 years old and she's has the same thing. She's always sick, but she loves to draw and can very well. We both are very sick, but the Lord blessed us with other things we can do. I write poems.....and she draws, and we both are living and have a great family...so what more could we ask for?

    I have this illness
    that I've suffered from for so long
    and I don't know how,
    but I've got to find a way to stay strong,

  10. 30. Can He See Me?

    • By Marian Shapcott
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2011

    My husband had a brain hemorrhage nine years ago that left him in a vegetative state. We have been married for forty one years. I go to see him every week, but he doesn't know me. Even though his eyes are open, he can't see and he can't move. He is in the royal hospital in Putney. He is in limbo and so am I. Life does go on, but it's not the same, and he will never get any better than he is now.

    Can he see me?
    Can he hear me?
    Does he know I'm there?
    When I am standing at his bedside or sitting in a chair.

    I wrote this poem to my brother Matthew because he was shot in the throat 4 years ago and now he's paralyzed and can't walk anymore and one day I was just sitting in my room thinking about my brother and his condition and this poem just came to me. I love my brother with all my heart and I would give anything for him to walk again.

    I look in your eyes and all I can do is sit down and cry,
    the pain in your face hurts me in so many ways.
    I wish I could just ask GOD to wash your pain all away.

  16. 36. In My Heart

    • By Linda M. Capp
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2009

    This is a poem about my mother who has been in a persistent vegetative state for 19 years. There is an almost no chance that she will ever awake from this, so my life has been very hard considering she got sick when I was just about 7 years old and my older sister was my mother figure. She also named me after her and she named me right because everywhere I go they say I look just like her. They say what doesn't make you weak will make you strong. I try to believe in this

    You know I Love You, you know I do.
    I just wish you could talk to me like I talk to you.
    I know how hard you try to speak,
    but those brain cells you lost made your body so weak....
