Candles cast off their light,
And honor those who lost the fight.
Never forgotten, forever in our hearts;
Cancer can’t extinguish the spirits who depart.
Even though they may not be with us tonight,
Rembering them will help us create sparks and ignite
Ways to vanquish this cantankerous disease, to
Obstruct this assassian from seizing
Nephews, sisters, mothers, and brothers. It’s
Time for cancer to be smothered tonight.
Why should we let it get us down?
It won’t happen, not in this town!
No, cancer just won’t win.
