Too young to understand,
Too old not to.
“Pancreatic cancer,” they all said,
but to me,
it sounded like a candy,
sounded like a treat.
As I sat on his lap,
Little did I know.
We had driven all the way
from North Carolina to
Humbolt Street,
so I could see him for
the last time I can remember,
clad in his white and blue checkered
with matching nightcap.
I had laughed at his appearance,
Little did I know.
If only I had known.

Like so gorgeous. It's true how when we're little we don't understand death or when we love some one. Loved it :)

Great job...Sad and easy to relate to when you have lost a loved one to ANY type of cancer.
