Cancer Took Her Life

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
A loved one she never met
Wondering where her days were spent
No grandma she had to love
No one was there to hug
Cancer took her life

She thinks about her day and night
Her thoughts like lightning striking before her eyes
You hear her sighs

Gone before they could meet
She wants to cry
She wants to weep
Especially when the dreams begin to creep

Did she have that blue glare in her eyes?
Red hair swinging side to side?
Was she easily confined?
Did she have a great mind?

These questions will never be answered
Due to her grandmother’s cancer
That consumed her and brought her into the light
Yet the little girl still prays for her at night

I felt your heart in this poem. It brings back memories of a good friend that lost his life to cancer. Job well done my dear. God Bless.
