Grace's wish

Grace lays in bed almost asleep,
A cancer patient of mere fifteen.
She's left alone in the hospital room,
Predicting what will happen to whom.

Alicia will get married and likely have children,
Dylan and Alex will become rich businessmen.
But Grace will lay, pale and weak.
A carefree world is what she seeks.

She felt her head and felt patches of hair,
Her once rosy cheeks, now cold and fair.
Her cracked lips held words yet to be told.
Her blue eyes sparkled with a life to unfold.

Time and time again she remembers,
Seventh grade starting in early September.
Their family trip to Arizona,
Her loving dad and his persona.

He'd swing her high on the tire swing.
She'd smile and shreak "Daddy I have wings!"
Then Leukemia came at the age of seven.
Now Grace wishes she could go to heaven.

Escape her world like on that tire swing.
Reaching to the heavens with magnificent wings.
Every lost second was valuable to her.
This life of treatment was what no one deserved.

Grace lays in bed almost asleep,
A cancer patient of mere fifteen.
Her heartbeat stops, then silence in the hospital wing.
Because Grace is flying on her tire swing.
