"Beauty is Self-Confidence applied to the face"

I picture him as a songbird,
Whose song was filled with life;
But his song was cut short,
As the storm took away his light,
He was decaying slowly everyday,
Everyday since his last birthday;
And nothing, nothing I could do would stop the pain.
And on a day in spring ,
When a songbird should fly,
My twelve-year old cousins heart stopped beating,
As cancer took his life.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

This is really sad and great. I'm sorry. You are brave to share this. Thank you, for sharing this.
