No one knows how much you mean to me, if I tried to explain it, they really wouldn't see. You are more than just my family, more than just my friend. Now that you are sick, I think of all the things we should have done and all the times I wish we had time enough to spend. A part of me is truly lost, as I am counting up the cost, of taking for granted that you would always be there. Oh how I despise Cancer, it is just so unfair. I am haunted by our childhood memories, and how you worked so hard at protecting my sisters and me. If I were an angel I would swoop down from heaven above and do the protecting, by sheltering you with God's love. I would take your pain from you and guide you under my wings And give you new hope of a promise of life everlasting and the joy that it brings.
