Six Letter Word
Just like the leaves fall down from a tree,
A six-letter word left me crumbled as can be.
A happy little family, it seemed like nothing could go wrong,
Until a few little words make the days feel ever so long.
This six-letter word seems so harmless,
Then why did it leave my life in such a mess.
This six-letter word, I dare not to say,
For the mere sound of it makes me want to fade away.
How fast this six-letter word can ruin a life,
Broken it can leave a family with kids and a wife.
Small little disease almost silent,
Who knew your ways could end up so violent
One day I tell you there will be an answer
To this murderer that we call Cancer.
