A Childhood Cancer Survivor Poem
© 2016 Christine Mulvihill
What is love can you tell me please
What’s it got to do with hope and peace,
How could a four letter word keep someone sane
How could a word so small cause so much pain.
This word when spoken in a manner true
Can change the relationship between me and you,
Barks may have bite but love means more
Funny how one word can make our emotions roar.
One word spoken for good or bad
Can change our mood from happy to sad,
When you say I love you it means so much more
Then anything you’ve ever said before.
When you say I love you say it for a reason
Don’t just say it to please em’,
I love you aren’t words to throw around
So when you say it, make it count.
