  • No one will stand by your grave and weep
    Nor will they talk of long lost friends
    No one will raise a drink nor wish you well
    For all the years you spent near by
    You were not asked nor were you wanted here

    Be sure you have not won the war
    This battle has only just begun
    We will not rest, nor disappear
    Until the day a child asks
    “Please tell me, what was cancer?”
