I didn’t love you,

Because I had to,

Or because I knew,

That you would not always be here,

I loved you,

Because I did.

You would wake up,

With pain in your eyes,

And yet,

You would still brave a smile.

I saw you,

Wincing as you did,

The easiest thing,

And I loved more,

Because of your endurance.

You had humility,

Through the struggle,

And you only smiled,

When the doctors said,

“Cancer has no cure.”

You where simply,

The most beautiful thing,

And I,

Loved you.
