Love

A Childhood Cancer Survivor Poem
© 2016 Christine Mulvihill

Love hurts, love scars, love pains
It has consequences and it has gains,
Love is all there is when I’m by your side
But when you’re gone the flood gates open wide.

I’ll cry a river and maybe two
I can’t stand not to be with you,
You mean so much you’ll never know
I pray I never have to let you go.

I’ve waited forever for someone like you
The time has come and my love is true,
Hold my hand and I won’t let you fall
Because If I lose you I lose it all.

You’re all I’ve wanted and never gotten
Your amazing grace will never be forgotten.
