  I WROTE THIS FOR Y GRANDMOTHER WHEN SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST CANCER IN 2007.

Iím sorry I havenít been around
I guess Iím just scared
Scared to see you sick
Scared to see you fighting

All my life youíve been
The strongest person Iíve known
Its scary how all that can change
When the test results come back

Iíve never been so scared
For anything else ever before
I donít want to lose you
I donít know what id do without you in my life

I try to be strong when I come to you house
I put on a face like Iím ok
But as soon as I get in my car and drive away
Thatís about the time the tears begin to fall

I cry for the fact that youíre sick
I cry for the fact that youíre being strong for me
I cry for the fact that I love you
I cry for the fact that one day youíll be gone
