Most of the kids my age

Think of whom to ask out next
While I ask how much more,
how much longer

I can picture myself running

Playing, and just being with friends
Eating whatever I want and most of all
I dream of going to school

My life in my dream

Is fun and exciting

But when I awake

Pain and sorrow bring
Me back to reality

Again I ask myself how much more

How much longer 'cause I
Know in the end the cancer

Will win
I just don't know when

Cancer can convince you that it is the bigger, so much stronger, than you...It will torment you, give you dreams about happiness, as you described, just to prove that it is the winner.  I hope you are stronger.  I hope you can win the battle: just keep fighting
