Daddy Has Cancer, Yet Again


Daddy has cancer, yet again
Why does this have to happen to him?
I try to keep brave for my family
But why does it have to be me?
Why do I have to be the one
Who has to keep secrets from the only one
Who I can tell my secrets to
And tells me hers too?
My mummy tells me all this stuff
About my dad but I've had enough
Of having to listen to my mother cry
And tell me things and the reason why
My daddy is in hospital and no one else can know
Not even my brother or sister, no, no
Because I'm the only one who can understand
Why we can't see him til the end
Of the week, on the weekend, the only time
We can see him, but we cannot cry
In front of him as he feels so bad
When he knows how much we are sad
Seeing him in the hospital look so sick

Daddy I miss you, I haven't seen you in so long
But everyone tells me I must remain strong
For you, for mummy, for everyone else
But who is there for me? ?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
