My Enemy-Contributed By Makayla Age 13


It grabbed you and stole you away so fast.

I watched helplessly.

I did nothing because there was nothing I could do.

I couldn’t go in the room, I couldn’t watch you die.

I’m sorry I didn’t say goodbye.

I miss you being in my life.

I miss the little things you did.

I miss having you there.

You were everything, my nurse, my bodyguard, my best friend, my teacher, my mom.

I was so young when you died…I still understood. I understood that you weren’t going to come home.

People asked me if I was ok, I lied.

I told them I was fine.

I stayed strong, that’s what I’m supposed to do right?

The truth is I cry at night, when I’m all alone.

I don’t want people to see me like that, see me weak and vulnerable.

I miss you so much. The thought that I may see you again doesn’t stop the pain. I wish it did. I hope one day it will.

I love you mom.

Dedicated to my friend who lost his mom years ago to cancer…. We love you Julie.
