Separation


I wake up and they are not there
When I get home they are not there
Then they are back a few days later
Stay for 3 days

I wake up and they are not there
Even on important days they are gone
When I need someone there is only one
Not the one I wanted
I go to them sometimes
But not the same as them home
Something is separating us
A person
No
Something worse than any person could do

People think it's only hard on her
But it's hard on me too
People don't understand
And to make it worse people being mean to me
And I have no one to talk to because
When I wake up they are not there
When I get home they are not there

Something separated us
Cancer
