From holiday dinners
While you cooked for hours
From fishing in the lake
While you helped me cast my line
You were always there
You were there for everything
I never thought it’d be different
But then you got sick
You were diagnosed with cancer
You refused to eat anything
Your body was shrinking, deteriorating
You lied there while I held your hand
And kissed you on the cheek
I didn’t want this to be real
I couldn’t imagine life without you
I thought you’d be at my graduation
I thought you’d be at my wedding
I thought you’d be there through it all
But your soul was taken from this earth
I don’t know where you are now
But I hope to see you again
For now I will just wait
Live my life through you
Be as strong and hardworking as you
I will strive to do my best
Just for you.
