Have you ever lost someone you love?
Someone who loves you?
Someone who was too young?

In the hospital
I didn’t recognize him.

Scared.


Sad.



Bald.

I was too little-
I didn’t understand-


But my mom,

She explained


What was happening

Cancer.


I heard that word too often.

One night-Late night
We got a phone call.
From the hospital.

And I cried.
He was lost.
