Gold little locks,
All shaved off.
Hope in her heart,
All gone soft.

Cancer strikes,
A little girl of six.
Her brain is sick.
The clock still ticks.

She knows what’s coming.
She prepares before hand.
White light is summoning,
And there waits the big Man.

Family cries in her death,
But soon come to find,
The notes that she left,
With hearts that she signed,

"I love you, Mommy.
Please take care.
I know you love me,
Through the pain you share.

Please tell Daddy,
That I love him, too.
Don’t be sad,
You’ll make it through."

This is about a little girl named Elena. She was six years old when she died of cancer. I didn't know her or her family. I read the story of her on a news feed and was inspired by her. She wrote little notes before she died, and she left them all over the house, hidden. that way when she passed on, as she knew she would, her parents had something left to hold on to. :) My eyes tear up thinking about this wonderful little girl. I let this stand as a sort of anthem for all young ones and their family going through cancer.

“Yeah, about the test...

The test will measure whether you are an informed, engaged, and productive citizen of the world, and it will take place in schools and bars and hospitals and dorm rooms and in places of worship. You will be tested on first "

The poem is absolutely wonderful :) I cried when I read it....but I can't help but think of the beautiful spirit that little girl must have had. You wrote a very lovely poem!
