No One Compares To You - Poem by Laquory Jones

No one compares to you
And there's nothing that I wouldn't do
As I live life I've found these words
To be very true at first I never knew
How hard of a life some people
Really have to chew but we're here
And still pulling through I know you
Don't have it easy and I mean honestly
You wake up dead in life as I see you
Through the corneas of my eyes
I'm keeping you in my sights
I'm amazed of just how much you've
Sacrificed just continue to live your life
Because It's bound to come up-right
I'll be your fire, bright lights and
Ultimately your guide because you've
Sacrificed everything for me
So the best thing that I could do is
Write this out individually you see

No one compares to you and there's
Nothing that I wouldn't do
As I live my life I've found
These words to be very true
That no one compares to you
I would sacrifice a million times over
I too was at a breaking point when life
Had hit me heavy I too wasn't ready
I'm just not making points life came
Crashing in all at once everything
Started coming unglued I could feel
Myself breaking loose I began to
Grab that noose the moment I'd
Received the news but not a minute
Too soon that she was there
With her umbrella raised up in the air

Many things that we take for granted
But it's in these circumstances that
I've gained some understanding
As we're bonded together (bounded forever)
Hoping that one day that she'll be
Cancer-free this day I'd thought that
I would never see right now I just want
A moment of peace I'll go silent in three
Life's getting too much the hurt is deep
How much do I hold in grief I can barely
Speak while saying goodbyes and such
It's like we're both giving-up
I've felt her vibrant touch through my soul
I can't even put it all in words but a
Vibrant soul she is and always was
Not once left my life untouched
Words could never say enough
But I miss her just as much
Her life's forever Eternal
I'll keep her fire burning
No more hurt and no more mourning
As our lives continues churning
