|A Wish For Candy
Everyone said you fought the good fight,
you're the bravest person they knew,
the strength you had was never ending,
I agree because I shared it all with you.
Our late night talks meant most to me,
because it was just us,
you shared with me, through your tears,
your fears and anxieties.
I would search for the right thing to say,
to put your mind at rest,
now I know it wasn't what I said,
it was just that I was there.
How proud of you, I'd always say,
and take one day at a time,
with a hug good night,
and the promise of a better day.
"You are never far from my thoughts",
through my own tears I would smile,
and with a wink from you, "We'll fight this",
was always your reply.
Until that Tuesday morning,
in the early hours the phone would ring,
the night before things changed forever,
the plans we made would never be.
Not a day goes by you're not in my thoughts,
and on your birthday,
I will light a candle,
and make a wish,
a wish I will keep in my heart,
and only share with you.
I still miss you.
