Fighter 'Til The End

February 9, 2010

He was the young boy everyone knew.
He was everyone's best friend.
He was the boy we all loved,
Even if you didn't know him.

When he was eight years old,
he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.
We were all so scared we were going to loose him.
But he said, "Don't worry, we will make it through."

We all fought hard with him for seventeen long months.
But sadly, that wasn't enough.
He passed away shortly after his 10th birthday.
We couldn't believe it, our worst nightmare came true.

Now he is the boy always loved.
The boy never forgotten.
The boy forever missed.
And the boy that was a fighter 'til the end.

My best friend inspired me to write this. This is a true story and actually happened to him. I miss him a lot and I know he would appreciate this poem.
