"With Angels Wings"
The whispering winds, a song they sing
A song of sorrow and of a heart so big
Your love reaches as far as the eye can see
I believe in dreams because in my heart, you beat
Just as a gentle breeze shimmers every leaf
Your love, in every heart, plants a seed
Elegance, love and hope is what grows beneath
And this is your gift to us....
For safe keeping.
So...if you ever wonder why heaven sings
It's because now you fly...
With Angels Wings
cancer, death, i love you, loss, love hurts, meaningful,
Your soul was being attacked
Meanwhile mine carried bags
Of sorrow, devastation and guilt
For I knew your little body couldn’t handle this
This cancer that sprung up out of nowhere when you were two
But you got your army men and went to work
How strong your little heart was
Bigger than any of those little army men
Nevertheless, your little body didn’t fight forever
How could it?
So I sat you on my lap and told you that it was okay
You died that day.
Every chance I get I say screw Cancer
Fot taking the most precious boy I’d ever laid eyes on.
cancer, death, grief, memory, mother,
sometimes in mass
as sacred songs
wash over me like rain,
I break free
and again you rise,
your tears flow
as tears fill my eyes,
your dying breath
after so many years,
the knife still cuts
and again, and

bereavement, cancer, grief, loss, lost love, native american, tribute,
knew a Tiger
who swam with dolphins
along the razor’s edge
meditated with a yellow bird
under his honey’s tree
in a west coast garden.
from an indigenous
sung his songs
5-7-5 and 5-7-5-7-7.
beloved’s last kiss
left him fragrant roses
when she crossed over.
beads, sky lanterns,
and a beautiful
he crying with Coyotes
to the moon or on
heaven’s Windswept Shore?
knew a Tiger
with the wind.

PoetrySoup Poem of the Day - January 29, 2019
cancer, dad, death,
Eyes gazing, questions raising...where is the one
who rested here? Where is the one who took refuge here?
They are gone...yet their things remain.
How odd...they did not stop to pack.
Bed fresh...room clean...as if some magazine.
Breeze blowing...sunshine glowing...
yet emptiness is felt...how strange.
I peer in further...where did they go?
Will they return...I'd like to know.
I hear the clock ticking on the wall,
like some sort of eary wake up call.
They shall not return...their time is done...
there is no need to turn and run.
death, health, loss,
Cancer, you are an artist
A prolific one at that,
For several dear ones
Have encountered your work.
Your wretched fingers as sculptors
Design imprints of faces unknown.
You smudge white, pain-ridden clay
A little here, a little there,
Till your subject becomes amorphous.
But oh you are not finished!
A red cross encrusted kiln
Invariably cements your doings.
A surgery of crackling and burning,
Until the shape is spit out,
A hard shell lost of all dignity.
Satisfied with your creation,
You give it one last look
Before it rests on an earthly shelf
And another project is begun.
I am sad to say,
You are quite skilled at your craft.
angst, cancer, death,
She has breast cancer, malignant tumor
Time passes, a waiting game
A filter of frustration and sadness
Death can not be overcome
Grief is the price of love
The moment of freedom, the mask falls off
Show yourself as a true friend
"We'll do this together"

death, life, loss, love, sad, sympathy, time
I've watched her vanish and dietirate into withering roses.
The pain that takes over her body is spreading fast and furious,
and only weakens her!
How can she bring so much light into a room of darkend souls, with her smile,
When she has only those two weeks to remain?
Why her a mother and new bride?
She doesnt want to miss a thing in her young boys lifes.
But... she already knows how it will be and how it will come.
Six days, six days she had before the death withen her took
one last breath, and she vanished into the atmosphere and left.
cancer, death, deep, depression, flower, loss, love, metaphor,
there she lay
planted beneath the soft, brittle earth
I remember picking you
no roses or tulips
I was the gardener—
what now shall I water
I cry in hopes my tears
will make you sprout
come out of your flowerbed
white and pure
yellow and cheery
green and new
I knew you were wilting
I saw you lose your petals
your eyes lost their vibrant glow
small and feeble
easily carried by the wind
you died within my gloves
now you are back where you began
the dark, eerie ground
but this time
you won’t grow
cancer, grief, loss, miss you, missing you, mom, mother,
Without you, the days are so long
& sometimes it's hard to just carry on.
You gave life & love to all things
The joy of giving was what you would bring.
I see your smile inside my head,
It just isn't fair that you have to be dead.
I know you suffered though all the while
You held your head high & even would smile.
As I watched you go through it, I always had hope,
Even when we came to the end of the rope.
Everything that we went through
Helped make us closer & more loving too.
Through ups & downs you always were strong
Even when you knew you didn't have long.
Life can be kind & cruel in the same,
But you will live on forever because of loves eternal flame.
appreciation, cancer, death, mother,
You gave me life
In the end
I didn't lose
But gained you
A BROKEN HEART
How many people die a day, and
And how many loved ones mourn,
How many lives change in a day,
And how many hearts are torn!
My heart was torn,
My life turned inside out,
I watched the man I loved,
With all his might,
But he died and I cried!
A tall, proud, handsome man,
Brought to rest,
At his best!
I miss you dad ,
And I feel sad,
But one day we will meet,
In the hallways of the sky,
Then we’ll no longer need
For in these many passages high
Above in the sky,
With an over whelming joy,
We will also see Alan your
Grandson, and my baby boy!
body, cry, death,
You are the fate many fear
You tend to bring nothing but tears
There is something for you to know
The end is here time for you to go
The families hold and love
Your victims that go above
There isn't much else we can do
But watch the them suffer by you
The time is here for you to go
Don't hesitate we will steal the show
The destiny is ours to take
The fate will be ours to make
The day of victory has came
You have been put to shame
We have won so now go away
There is nothing more for you to say
angel, beautiful, bereavement, cancer, celebration, death,
This Mothers day is different,
not like the years before
it leaves me feeling sad
my heart a little sore.
I know you're watching over,
tracing steps I take
careful there to guide me
whenever my heart aches.
So I'm sending hugs and kisses,
all my earthly love
to one special angel
my Mama up above.
Mom just know I love you,
your right here in my heart
and every time it beats
were not so far apart.
I know were not together,
not the same old way
but I still love you very much
Happy Mothers Day.

June 18, 2013 our world was Forever Changed
We where a few minutes from home
When we got the call from our baby sister
Said we need to get back home
We need to come as fast as we can drive
Mom really needs us
Something’s wrong with Daddy
The whole way we drove 80
Hoping & Praying we’d make it back in time
Our Family & Friends were weeping
By the time we got to his side
We knew then our Daddy had been taking
And our hearts they were breaking
We never got to say Goodbye
We each softly kissed that man
We four sisters laid down beside him
And cried just like babies
For our world was Forever Changed that day
cancer, caregiving, death of a friend,
By Lynn Boyle 1956-2014
Cancer is a monster
it has taken my
It has seared my skin off my body
It has broken my spirit
It has destroyed my hope for any future
It has taken my identity
And left me
Waiting for death
Milan Georges Burovac
cancer, cry, dark, death, health, slam,
finally - we are
time against time
I am only a human
simpler than one instant
of the fragile flesh
of the roaming mind
a walking dead
absence, angel, best friend, cancer, death, death of a friend,
That day when I opened my eyes
I just as quickly shut them tight
I knew you were going to die
But I couldn't stand by your side
And I cannot forgive myself
For being too weak to say goodbye
I couldn't scream and I couldn't cry
All I could do was cover my eyes
Again living like the blind
I needed to understand why
And I wanted to save your precious life
I would have given my own to the endless sky
Rather than see us all left behind
cancer, death, life,
Over the years of enacting roles varied
Daughter, sister, wife, mother flurried
No panacea, this strife
Bout of cancer, rife
And it take
I did ache
Listen to the fife
Approaching to kill, a knife
Ruthless and scary, I was buried
Over the years of enacting roles varied

cancer, death, pain,
This pain, not today, I can’t do this pain,
And I feel I’m never going to mend.
It’s severe, immediate, 100%,
As it slowly takes me toward my end.
My back is a rage, my hands and mouth,
My legs and feet, my head.
This pain’s a paralysis keeping me still,
All I can do is lie in this bed.
Now I’m dying each day, alone with pain,
Alone in this fight to the death,
As this cancer slowly devours me,
Devouring every beautiful breath.
And each time I try to go to sleep,
To the World I say a little goodbye,
Goodbye to every little thing that I was,
Goodbye to the cry and I sigh.
Abimbola Mosobalaje Davis
cancer, death, emotions, feelings, grief, heartbroken, sick,
But who washed her in pains
That her tears, soil to drain
When innocent mind blots in grief
Affliction that is intransigent
The mystery that brought tears
To His hands she await in fears
But as sun kisses her naked eyes
Drained her pains, heavenly friend
As the drip passes fluids to her hole
To her daughter she smiles
Agonies of her absence in loneliness
The nakedness of the truth, she will know
That today is the time since awaited
And the kiss of the sun again
From the glass pane of the window
The gentleness of its touch
That, of course, is the heaven dew
Eyes now brownish, date given now due
In gentleness, she closes her eyes
In tears, her daughter knows she’s gone
success, sympathy, time,
I spent almost month in a hospital room
This ever worst sick was so much and doom.
Chilling so bad in a mild quiet night,
Freezing to death like I was losing my sight.
Lying on a white bed and feeling this pain.
Too excruciating and made me insane.
Medical tests were examined crucially,
Days were softly killing me physically.
Delivered my body in the operating room,
Wanted to extend this life and make it well bloom.
Hours of terror tortured me so ruthless
Felt heavy stitches which made me so breathless.
Years passed and I’m all too well.
Survived this disease given from hell.
I’m a cancer survivor! Fighting for life!
Saving myself for loved ones in life.
beautiful, cancer, death, goodbye, granddaughter, grandmother, sunshine,
You are my sunshine
my only sunshine.
She would sing every morning, as she would clean.
You make me happy
when skies are grey.
Her voice was like an angel.
She sung so beautifully.
You will never know dear, how much we love you.
It's ok maw maw, you can let go now,
You don't have to stay and suffer anymore.
Close your eyes, I'll hold your hand.
She then took her last breath, I knew she couldn't stay.
God why did cancer, have to take my sunshine away.?

Killing Far Too Many
Silent Killer Of Families
anger, betrayal, cancer, death, death of a friend, evil, god,
What if their is a god
if so where is he?
why do bad things happen
especially when it happens to me
What did i do to deserve this?
when he makes my loved ones lifeless
What made him choose me
for all the times iv asked of we
why do the good ones die
none of this feels right
It happens to the best of people
all the ones who do no evil
how can this all be fairly
when he gives them there wings early
