My Aunt

The days are hard as the nights are long,
And they slowly pass me by.
I miss her more than words can say,
All I ever do is cry.

The days we spent so long ago,
Begin to slowly fade.
I'll never forget the fun we had,
A single minute, I would never trade.

They say she put up a long, hard fight,
So there is nothing we can do.
The cancer finally got to her.
It started small, but constantly grew.

I think about her all the time
And wonder if she is still there.
I think she's watching over me,
In a second life without a care.

I know she's in a better place,
But the pain of losing her still hurts.
The last time I saw her, she wasn't well.
She was still, and hardly alert.

It's not fair that this happened to her.
She was the best person that you could know.
The funeral was long and painful,
I almost wish I didn't go.

I guess bad things happen to good people,
And I don't know why it's true.
The only thing I'll ever be sure of,
Is Aunt Vicki, I miss you!
