I'll Die With You


I can't stop crying

Because you're dying

And I can't live without you

I can't let you go

Oh, don't you know

I'm lost without you

I can't find a way

But I still pray

Somehow to save you

I'd give you my soul

If that could control

And stop me from losing you

I won't let you down

A way will be found

I'd do anything for you

Pay any price

Tell any lies

So I won't lose you

Need you with me

Oh, can't you see

I'll die with you


A/N: This poem was written a few months ago when the dreaded "C" word was mentioned. Yes, that's right, boys and girls. I wrote this poem when I found out my mom had cancer. And not just any cancer, a cancer that would kill my mom in a matter of months if they didn't get it early enough.

The good news is they got it early enough. The bad news is they had to cut out all of her female organs. Anyway, I wrote this poem before I found out about the good news, while I sat in the car waiting for my mom to get out of the doctor's office and tell me whether or not they could stop this in time. Whether or not my mommy was going to die.

It was a very horrible time for me.

But, anyway, I'm better now. But, as you can imagine, this is still a very personal poem. So, no flames. I don't think I can even take constructive criticism on this one.

And, to all those out there who have cancer, or someone they love has cancer, my heart, my prayers, and my compassion are with you.

Luv ya,

Tashi :)
