I don't know who that man is,
lying inside that casket
but life throws obstacles at you
like a winner of a raffle basket


i know that mans your best friend
'til death do us part'
but choosing life isn't an option
that leukemia can be smart

i see your chin quietly tremble
tears slowly tremble
but daddy life is a gift
a receipts take a toll

I barley know my dad's friend except for the fact that he is sweet, caring, and supportive. Leukemia is a very scary disease and he is in my prayers.
