For My Mother


You said, "Why?"
angry at God, angry at me.

You said, "How?"
even though no one could answer.

You said, "Not Fair!"
and everyone agreed.

You said, "Life Sucks!"
But only a little at a time.

You said, "Now?"
But is there a good time?

You said, "Cancer."
I said, "I know how you feel."
