My Perfect 10
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 sharing another poem filled with heartache, anguish, loss, and all those other emotions that a parent who has lost a Child to Cancer goes through, written by Michelle Nel, mother of Ryan Nel whose story we brought to you earlier this month.
The Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to sincerely thank all our Onco Parents that have shared with us in the hope that their stories can help other parents who have children that are ill but are not sure what the problem is, and to raise Childhood Cancer Awareness so that earlier diagnosis can be done.
We will continue to publish more poems and stories by Onco Parents 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
My Perfect 10
You asked me not to cry when you’re gone
I’m sorry my precious son, I lost that one.
I told you then that I would cry
As to you I could not lie.
You asked mommy to be happy when you’re gone
I’m trying to go on; a battle yet to be won.
When I hear the angels sing I know you are near
To chase away all of my fear.
I wish I could join you in heaven right now
But I need to be an angel on earth before my last bow.
I know the wait will be worth the while
Until one day I will see your beautiful smile.
I need to carry on your legacy
So that you can stay proud of me.
Though I’ll never get over you
I need to be there for others too.
I’ll never give up hope
I am trying so hard to cope.
We have a bond forever strong
In your eyes I could do little wrong.
Come rain or sunshine weather
My love for you is stronger than ever.
My heart aches for you more and more
You were my perfect 10 score.
