My soul to keep

At that moment

She stood poised

Present

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
