Dedicated to Sandra

Started by Anonymous on 08 May 2014 at 16:50

Sandra is one of my February Valentines chemo group. Her daughter has recently told us that all treatment has stopped, and she has renal failure. We don't know how much longer she has. It could be a day, it could be a couple of weeks.


Dedicated to Sandra


You're our first thought when we wake

and our last when it gets late.

Our lives are deeply intertwined,

all the February Valentines.

We shared your joys, we shared your pain,

when this dreadful sickness came

and tore our lives apart.

But deep inside our heart

forever we will keep,

whether wakeful or asleep,

precious thoughts of you,

Our Sandra, strong and true.
