Cancer - Poem by Tracy Rollings

Remember when it came
you took it very well
through the surgeries and pain
when you hurt could' tell.

Never did you complaint
have anything bad to say
just seem to enjoy life
each and ever day.

Tho as time grew near
no one really knew when
they called I came then.

I Was told six months
that's not true at all
waited till the last minute
before they ever called.

Got Christmas with you
happy new year too
soon you'll be gone
there's nothing I can do.

We shared memories of past
ones that made you smile
forgave each other at last
held your hand for a while.

Couple months down the road
said you were feeling good
but it didn't last long
I prayed that it would.

That call came back again
you wouldn't make through tonight
we stuck it out together
got to hold you tight.

Now the day has come
time for you to go
heard your name called today
angels will take you away.

    I know how hard it is. I've lost several people to cancer and now my brother
    has a couple of months they say. So sorry, Tracy.
