I remember the day she held my hand

and she told me the news.

I remember sitting there in shock 

wondering how this could ever happen to someone like you.

How could someone so beautiful get so ill in a matter of time?

I couldn't talk or move.

All I could do was sit there. 

I remember going into the room and just hugging you.

A hug that lasted more than a few minutes.

Tears that began to flow were wiped away by your soft hands.

Fast foward to April.

The day things changed , I had a feeling but I tried to ignore it.

Walking in the door and seeing them all sitting around.

Getting the news that cancer took your life.

I dropped to the floor and alllowed myself to cry.

Things will never be the same.

I lost my bestfriend, my grandmother, my second mother.

She was gone in a matter of minutes.

Gone while I was in school.

No way to tell her I loved her or to tell her goodbye. 

The day my life changed forever .

This is really sad, yet so real. Great job, I love it!
