Author's Notes

"So many people are touched by this horrible disease. It does not discriminate. It knows no race, age, or sex. It doesn't care what religion you are or where you live. This disease just keeps taking our loved ones away. I wrote this after two beautiful souls lost their battle within a week."

I lost a friend today 

She was a shining star

She fought every day

She really came far 


She lost her mom today

Who was loving and kind

Her battle lasted years 

Now her kids are in a bind


They lost their dad today

He was a really great guy

He thought he had it beat

His kids just sit and cry


They lost their child today 

As innocent as can be 

She struggled every day 

Now she is set free 


He lost a cousin today 

She was there for all

Her fight was not long

He just got the call


We lost so many people 

Life has been rough

Living with cancer 

You learn to be tough
