Remnants of You (Poem)

Poetry By: Tyler Benjamin

In 2005, my mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and it struck us with immense grief. I remember watching her hair fall off from the chemo-therapy and sitting at home, not knowing if she would be alive by the end of the night. It was a very emotional time for me and I wrote this poem remembering this depressing time, and if she passed away. Please read.

It's gotten so cold

No hearth can warm me to the bone

Shadows dancing in the silence

Past regrets gathering in my head

All the things I wish I would have said

Walking this winding road

You've left me so alone

How can I,

How can I recover from when the cancer took you from me?

Every time I pass your bed,

I see the empty side where you're supposed to be.

Why'd you leave me like this?

You promised me,

That you would protect me

From the tides of life

Where are you now?

In Heaven or Hell?

All that I have left, now,

Are remnants of you.
