My soul to keep

At that moment

She stood poised


and jaded

I would look at her

Her weary eyes

I knew her pain

I knew her lies


Her beautiful face

Tells a story of courage

Fighting to survive

You don’t have to carry this weight

On your own

Lean on me

You are not alone


Between the highs and lows

Even in her descent

She believed she could

Like a badge

She wears km her fight

Cancer trying to steal from her

She would not fall

Living was her will,

her privileged right


She was extraordinary

We knew this

But she was more

She was an extraordinary fighter


She made us proud

Because of who she is

Her strength hovers above us

As if a floating cloud

Her heart, her soul does us proud


She is my Aunty
