With all those memories of you,
Smiling helping everyone out…
Motivating me to do my very best
Telling me I did great (even though I didn’t do that well)
don’t let them get to me
Now I keep those memories in my heart.
Pushing myself with the memory of you.
Ignoring those who try to get to me,
Not letting anyone shut me down.
Doing my very best,
All Day, Every Day
Now you’re gone
Gone like many others
With the unwelcome presence of cancer
Never coming back
