This is a poem I wrote for someone very close who passed away from cancer.
For Harry.

A Brothers Promise

Worry just won’t let you go
Organs fading, painfully slow
Desperatly holding on with love
Fighting that snow white dove
Family strong, silent, and brave
Still you fight that dreaded grave.

Praying for a bit more grace
A little longer, save some face
The need to cherish loved ones,
for just a few more perscious sun’s
Blazing pain in wet, fevered eyes
Everlasting promise up in the skies.

Soft grey skin hanging loose
Stealing breath before the noose
With warm tears rolling,
in fond memories strolling
Afraid to leave the past
Fighting with love to the last.

Only the promise from your brother
One you’ll accept from none other
To care for your family, as a mother
Only then to that promised peace
Finally off to rest, find some release.

Then the fragile life fades away
For in this realm no longer can you stay
Family and friends, for you they pray
Grim reaper…haunting those who stay.
