Cancer



The day you passed away
Was the day my whole world got dark and gray.
Why did you have to go and leave?
You said we would live for eternity!
We were so happy together, you and I
A bunch of kids just getting by
They said we wouldn't make it
They said it wouldn't last
20 years together, wow that went fast!
The day they told you the cancer was back,
It was to much, you left to fast
My world crumbled watching you suffer
I felt so helpless, like I was nothing
What I wouldn't give, to have you back
Even for a few minutes, it's all I ask
You were meant for me, as I for you
We had the life of a fairy tale
20 years of joy and love
And cancer stole it all from us
