Cancer came in..


Cancer came in and changed my life forever

For the worse not for the better

I may be stronger

I may be wiser

I may be kinder

I may be a fighter

But I still lost it all

I still felt the fall

I lost it all.

She fought an uphill battle

Everyday a struggle

Never a cease fire

But she never tired

She loved me

For the things I couldn't see

My lil sis

The girl I miss

She was a light

She was bright

She is now my compass and my anchor

And I the sailor

She is not gone eternally

Not really

Our body's may die

But our souls will always be alive

In that I know I'm never alone

That is one thing that has been shown

She is simply out of reach

There is a breach

I know it is not forever

We won't always be severed

But for now I miss we

I hate being just me
