Yes, I Understand

Yes, I Understand

A Poem by Kimberly "Melody" Carney
"

This poem is dedicated to all who understand the sting of cancer. Each father, daughter, mother and son whos' hourglass did fall. My heart goes out to the parents.

"

 

The big move

 

This vessel of mine is so frail.

Unturned hourglass sand.

I try to hide my burdens deep,

when my family lends a hand.

 

~~~~~~~~~~

I lived this life with all I am.

It was a life quite grand!

I gave each moment all of me,

my flesh it now demands.

 

~~~~~~~~~~

I am not sad of letting go.

All life a short expected span.

I pray for strength for all,

may they see the master plan.

 

~~~~~~~~~

It’s what’s beyond the silver veil,

this soul it must be manned.

It’s time for me to say goodbye,

I hope you understand.

 

~~~~~~~~~~ 

I know you’ll cry without a doubt.

Once more please take my hand.

Together we’ll accept this fate.

Separately we’ll now stand.

 

 ~~~~~~~~~~

This cancer took a part of you,

as I slipped from your hand.

That part of you is with me now.

And yes, I understand

 

~Melody

Author's Note

Kimberly "Melody" Carney
My hope for this write is that I kindle a=understanding anew. From our first breath we take...we are not promised tomorrow...only promised that on day we will take our last. Live like that day may be today. Take the time you've been too busy to give to do what you; promised, meant to do, been waiting to do, just want to do...right now may be what you are remembered for.
So many have said this is such a terrible disease...I agree, yet one more deadly runs through the veins slowly destroying us all...selfishness. It finds its way in and like cancer slowly kills any life we had with family, friends, relationships, parenting, marriage, work, who we once were. The saddest part there is a cure for it…in selfishness we ignore it. Now that my friend is a terrible disease!

This is very sad. You are about to make me cry again. I have 3 children and I could never imagine losing any of them. I lost my grandmother to lung cancer and that was extremely rough, I could imagine how I would react to my own child, I don't want to either, and pray I never have to. This poem is amazing, and very heartfelt. You are an amazing poet, I always enjoy reading your work. This poem is one of my favorites, even though its quite the tear jerker. As always 100/100

Absolutely a stunning piece - beautiful, powerful and moving; words can't really come close to expressing what this poem and video makes me feel.

The most touching poem I have read. If I spend the rest of my life bowing before God for the healthy family I have, it won't be enough.

Oh boy..this took my breath away. A most beautifully written piece. The font you have used is perfectly matched to the delicate matter of your poem. The music backs up this powerful and superbly written piece. Very well done!

Very moving tribute to life and what is truely important as we move through our hours and days. We sometimes lose sight of the people and the relationships behind the disease. Thank you for this inspirational poem!
