You Will Be Missed

You Will Be Missed

A Poem by Speak in Silence

I knew you when we were young
When we had no clue
When no one cared what we looked like
When know one really knew

Everyone knew, but no one noticed
You kept your head held high
Nothing would keep you down
You wouldn't let life just go by

But no one could ignore it anymore
It was getting worse
They couldn't stop it
Why did "God" give him this curse?

Since fifteen months old
This disease had been feasting up inside you
Eating up the muscles
By this point, everyone knew

Gone every Wednesday
The doctors couldn't treat it
But still you laughed
You still had spirit

But on May 29th, 2012
You lost your war
Fore Cancer had proven once again
That it will defeat even more

You will be missed Spencer <3

He, like many other cancer patients, is an inspiration. It's so nice to see you honoring the battle he partook in and his spirit. It was a very lovely poem :)

Thank you
Sad that a beautiful piece has to instill sorrow in the reader. I loved the sincerity in your well-picked words.
One typo though. In the third-last line, did you mean to say, 'For cancer...?'
Great piece. Keep it up.
