Please Don't Take Me Away
Life is funny sometimes. Especially when all of our familiarities go in the direction of the wind.
Life gives you a sentence with no option to defend.
I pray that my mind can accept and perceive the diagnosis that is near.
I know that we all are going to die some day but I have so much to live for while I’m here.
Please don’t take me away. I need to watch my boys grow.
If I leave now I will have grandchildren that I will never get to know.
I don’t even know myself.
Please give me life because I am not ready for death.
Don’t break my family’s heart.
Please don’t pull us apart.
Being here in spirit is not how I want to be.
I want to feel, react…I don’t want to be just a memory.
If I am diagnosed, I will be strong and I will work to survive.
I want to have hope and know that I have lived while I am alive.
If this lump in my breast develops into something beyond my control.
Let me live long enough for my husband and I to grow old.
