Aunt Lisa


The ovarian cancer spread
Like wildfire. It soared
Like a rocket in the sky.

You hid your pain with a smile, hoop earrings, and a bandana.
I wish to,
Just one last time,
See you,
Hear you.

I hope you've seen how I've grown
Or that you're with your mom.
I hope you haven't forgotten me.

I want you to know I miss you.

You were my family,
You were a part of my life,
Then you were gone,
Just gone.

I wait and count the days till I'll see you again.
But until then I'll be here,
Waiting.

I love you.
Aunt Lisa.

This Poems Story

I wrote the poem a while back about my Aunt Lisa who passed away when I was really young. She was a big part of my life and I still miss her to this day. My whole family does. I wrote it mostly to keep the memories I have of her alive. My whole family loved her and I dedicate this as a tribute to her. I was four when she passed and I'm sixteen and a junior in high school now. Poetry is an outlet for me and has helped me a lot.
