If Love Could End Cancer

If love could end cancer
How would that be?
I would have my Grandma
Sitting right here next to me.

If love could end cancer
How would that feel?
I would be relieved that my father-in-law
Never had to take another pill.

If love could end cancer
What would I do?
I would never have to see my nephew
With a leukemia tattoo.

If love could end cancer
What would we hear?
It would sound like a celebration
Ringing in the new year.

If love could end cancer
I wouldn't have memories of being 25,
My babies 1 and 3,
My husband fighting for his life.

Love can't end cancer
That we all know
But love is greater than cancer
And I'll never let love go.
