The Malicious Theft


It's been eight months since you've been gone
I've been in denial all along
Still haven't accepted, or dealt with my grief
I miss you Mom beyond belief
I'm haunted by the way that you left
The cancer committed a malicious theft
The sight of you gasping for air in your bed
I can't get these thoughts out of my head
The pain you were in when your meds wore off
Your breathing grew shallow and you couldn't cough
You probably wanted to be strong for me
Wishing that all of this I wouldn't see
You probably wanted to say so much
As death was tightening its suffocating clutch
Watching you suffer was too much to bear
I wonder if at the end you knew I was there
I knew you were worried about how I'd cope
I think my new life had given you hope
I wonder if you were trying to fight
Did Grandma welcome you into the light?
The greatest fear is of the unknown
But God is real and his mercy he's shown
It's only by him that I'm making it through
I'll see you in heaven Mom, I miss you.
