' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Hungry As A Caterpillar - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

The cancer
devours

her dreams
her memories.

Her death
haunts her living hours.

Soon
the cancer

will eat its way
(hungry as a caterpillar)

to the exact
location of her soul.

She clasps
her fingers within my fingers

as if to comfort
my anguish

smiles
as if she will

live forever.

    Very touching. May god bless her for a long and peaceful life. Let nobody in the world have this kind of suffering. This is my prayer. (Report) Reply
