His body, so frail
No hair on his head
His hazel eyes sparkle
But I know he’s hiding something within.
The cancer eats away at his happiness, his youth
He puts on a show, trying to pertain a glow
But this glow falters and for a moment shows within,
How battered and broken his spirit is.
As his life continues to spin
Out of control, as the cancer strengthens
Making us pray hard to a God
Who hopefully heals him
But George doesn’t believe that there is any more that he can deal with.
And so his hazel eyes are now dull, for he accepts defeat
No longer do they sparkle
As the cancer continues to eat,
And valiantly destroy what doctors have tried so hard to keep.
Maybe we all are putting on fake smiles and faulty glows
To show that we’re not hurting too,
To show his cancer hasn’t affected us so.
