Angel in Heaven
September is International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and once again the Little Fighters Cancer Trust is hard at work sharing everything we can regarding Childhood Cancer and trying to raise Childhood Cancer Awareness by sharing information and Personal Stories with you.
Today we are taking a bit of a break from telling Ryan’s Story to share with you a poem that his mother Michelle wrote.
Writing down how one feels is probably one of the best things that any parent of a Child with Cancer can do, as it is one way of getting all those emotions out that one just cannot always share with others.
We will be publishing more of these poems by Michelle throughout this month as we work hard to bring Childhood Cancer to the fore and spread Childhood Cancer Awareness – all in the effort to inform and educate other parents to the ravages of Childhood Cancer and to remind everyone that
The Best Defence against Childhood Cancer is Awareness and Early Diagnosis
You are a special boy Ryan
You are my angel in heaven.
Through each day’s heartbreak
You are the cherry on my cake.
Never could I imagine living without your smile
Even if only for a short while.
Glad I could show you over and over that I cared
How I miss the love we shared.
I will continue to fight
With you in my heart tight.
You taught me strength
In no uncertain terms or length.
As I wipe the tears away
And carry on with another day
Remembering my brave boy
I wait to reunite with you with joy.
The arms I long for will open wide
And I’ll be there right by your side.
Proud as only a mamma can be
Just you wait and see.
My love for you will never fade away
Nor your special place in my heart each day.
For you I have an undying love
See you one fine day in heaven above.
