Brittney loved basketball,
Friends and parties too;
And when it came to painting,
That's all she wanted to do.
She painted everything she saw,
Birds, flowers, the sky;
Somedays she sat at her window,
And painted everything that passed her by.
But lately she'd been feeling woozy,
Her muscles ached a lot;
And her parents got kind of worried,
So they took her to the doc.
The doctor took a couple of tests,
To see if everything was ok;
Then the nurse came out with a look of sadness,
And this is what she had to say.
"I'm sorry but you've got leukemia,"
"You've got about 3 months more;"
Then Brittney got up and ran out of the room,
And slammed the office door.
She ran down the street screaming,
And cried her eyes out dry;
And stayed up all night,
Wondering what it's like to die.
Her parents held her tightly,
And said, "We love you;"
"We'll make your last few months the greatest,"
"We'll do anything for you."
So Brittney and her parents moved to Florida,
To live by the sea;
Because Brittney loved the ocean,
And when she died, that's where she wanted to be.
She spent her days painting,
And horseback riding in by the bay;
But one day she met this guy,
He said his name was Jay.
They collected seashells together,
And talked about all kinds of things;
And then one day while walking,
He handed her a ring.
It said that, "I love you,"
Which brought tears to Brittney's eyes;
And when he put it on her finger,
She began to cry.
"I've got leukemia, and about a month more."
Then Jay said, " No matter what, I love you;"
"And no matter what, you are the one I adore."
So they spent all their time together,
And swam in the Atlantic all day;
But Brittney was getting weaker,
And it was hard for her awake to stay.
So one day Brittney painted her best picture,
And gave her best to Jay;
She said, "I want you to remember me,"
"Even when I have to leave this place."
One day while they were walking,
And searching for seashells in the sand;
Brittney collapsed and started to lose her breath,
And said to Jay, "Please hold my hand."
"I love you more than anyone,"
"You are my only true love;"
"But now my time is up,"
"And I'll watch you from above."
Then Brittney's body was lifeless,
As she lay in Jay's arms;
And he sat there with her all day,
And kept her safe from harm.
I hope this teaches us a lesson,
To tell someone we love them, whenever we can;
Because maybe they'll be gone tomorrow,
And we won't be there to hold their hand.
Because love means everything to everybody,
Without it, the world would be dead;
So always tell someone you love them,
A parent, a lover, a friend.
Have a great day!
