Have you watched someone you love
life slowly drift away?
Have you tried to give them hope,
but you were the one feeling helpless?
Have you watched the spark in their eyes
slowly grow dim?
Have you witnessed their vulnerability
as they mustered enough courage to hold on to
their dignity? `
Have you watched them grown weak
after always being strength to others?
Have you ever watched someone full of faith,
encourager, and a spiritual advisor to others
become challenged by the same faith they
Have you ever told them you’re praying for them,
but you were also praying for yourself to help you
Has someone ever told you their child asked “if
you leave me who’ll be my mother or father?”
Then, as you watched the tears roll down their
you sat quietly and cried inside, too?

because you didn’t want to see their face?
You knew if you could get away, then
you wouldn’t have to look into the face of death.`
Cancer is a green-eyed heartless monster.
Have you ever had questions like why, why them,
or why anyone…but you knew despite everything

Have you ever admitted to yourself I’m angry…
I’m angry because I can’t do anything
to make things change?
But, you knew without conviction, you’re
angry because cancer is a cowardly monster
looking for others to pick on.
