A poem about a woman who has cancer and her doctors tell her she will die soon. But what will happen to her 1 year old son?

When the ocean meets the sky,

i cry.

Knowing that today i might die.

My illness that has never gone away,

because here i stand with it today.

The thing that keeps me alive is my son,

the only reason my life is fun.

But if i die,

will my son cry?

But if i live i will love him more,

that when i die he will mourn.

My son will grow,

without any love for me on his own,

But i love him and thats enough,

because i don't want him hurt by my love.

So i ask myself,

Should i die?

What a difficult thing this would be for a person. You portrayed it wonderfully though. Keep writing-you have good inspiration!
