Best Summer of My Life This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Cancer



A word no one likes to hear



It’s filled my life



Taught me lessons of love and dying



Taught me about myself


Cancer



It brings families together, or breaks them apart



Or it can do both.



Cancer



A word that can change everything



It filled my summer, made it better



Brought me happiness and fun



Brought some much needed time


Cancer



It gave me a new best friend, and



Gave me back my grandma.



Cancer



A word that can bring laughter



It filled my heart, helped me love



Showed me what it truly means to live



Showed me to enjoy my time


Cancer



It brings some trips to the hospital,



And itchy skin.



Cancer



A word that can drain you



It filled my time, especially at night



Strained my muscles and left me tired



Strained my emotions


Cancer



It always supplies much family time,



And many chances to learn the family secrets



Cancer



A word that brings hope



It filled the prayers of hundreds around the world



Supplied a way to build and move on



Supplied a second chance


Cancer



It brings about long tiresome days,



And screaming Kenny Chesney in the car.



Cancer



A word that is no longer foreign to me



It filled me with a desire



Needed to find a place, any place to help



Needed to try to make up for lost time


Cancer



Most times it brings death,



But it can also bring new life and a great summer.
