Suffering a terrible disease

2008 poems

This sweet, sweet, ol woman suffered such a terrible disease,

and in the process of having this disease,

She had lost both of Her legs and an arm for the ride of pain. 

I don't understand

why a disease so deadly,

could be so painful on such a beautiful soul.

When She had died

from this disease of diabetes,

She also died

of a stroke caused

by the painful disease in the year of 1999.
She was only the age of 66.
