'That Day'

Poem By Desirae Roa

“That day”
I never knew cancer would take you,
I ask “why? Why do bad things happen to good people? ”
That day I realized the good in bad, cancer set you free.
I sat there next to you in your hospital bed as I watched you fight as hard as you’ve ever fought, struggle to breathe so helplessly.
That day angels called for you to join them, as they lifted you away.
I knew from that day forward things would never be the same.
I lost one of my best friends that day.
I’ve always carried you in my heart no matter how far away we are
I know you’re here now, I know you watch over me.
My mind is slowly forgetting the sound of your voice and pictures remind me of how beautiful inside and out you really were.
-Your “baby”
Love you mama Vangie

God spoke to you that day; he grabbed your hand and took you away.
