This Is How I Cope

This is how I cope,

Pounding out a steady

Rhythm on the keyboard

After hearing that my little

Cousin just got diagnosed.

This is how I cope with my

Little, small, young relative,

One with a special place in my

Heart, that energetic boy who

I'm not going to see grow up.

Who is never going to even had a

Chance to become an adult,

Who didn't even have a fair fight

With cancer, and we all know that

By now, it's only a matter of time.

I would give anything to trade places with him.

The End
