 Elsie`s Poetry



"Your Mum`s got cancer" I was told
To save you, my soul I`d of sold,
I prayed so hard but all in vain
My whole being was racked in pain.

For 2 years I watched you slowly die
Helpless I could only stand by,
I`d smile with you but inside cry
"Why did God want you Mum Oh! Why?"

I needed you more than he did
My pain and tears from you I hid,
It was torture watching you fade
"Please find a cure" daily I prayed.

The time had come for you to leave
All I could do now was to grieve,
My world fell apart it just crashed
All my hopes for the future dashed.

The children could not stay that day
While I took them you slipped away,
I didn`t get to say goodbye
Oh! How I sobbed and I did cry.

I sat with you and held your hand
You were no longer of this land,
But still I wanted you to stay
Though motionless your body lay.

I couldn`t bring myself to part
When you went Mum you took my heart,
You took my reason to live too
How much I loved you this you knew.

23 Years I have cried for you
To this day my heart is still blue,
Life just isn`t the same at all
While I live my tears will always fall.
