The last strand of hair has fallen,
The final amount of energy is being drained.
The dark circles under my eyes are prominent,
The uncompromising pain remains.
How long can I fight,
How much can one endure?
My dear child asks me, "Did you have fun at the doctor today?"
Another young one inquires, "How much longer until the cancer goes away?"
My dear children, I have no answers.
Only a promise I can make.
I will not leave you without trying,
Every day, with a strong will, I shall wake.
I will continue to fight until the seas dry,
no water to hold in my hand.
I will continue to fight until the mountains crumble,
and every bird falls to the land.
I will continue to fight until all energy is drained
and the world's end embarks .
I will continue to fight until the moon turns to dust
and the Sun itself turns to dark.
My dear children, until my last breath, I will continue to fight for you.
A mother's love is an unquenching thirst, something cancer cannot undo.
