Gone

You’ve been gone a long time
I don’t know how many years
You’re never far from my mind
I hear your voice in my ears

Gone but never forgotten
You’re etched in my DNA
I still think of you often
That will never go away

Things come up I want to tell you
And some I want to talk to you about
But your future fell through
So those words will never come out

Once, it seemed beyond belief
That you wouldn’t be in my life
That your death would be a relief
That you’ll never meet my kids or wife

You were gone far too soon
But that’s what cancer does
Tears us down, brings us doom
And it affects all of us
