60-Yr-Old Writes “Rap” For Dog Who Got Her Through Cancer & Has Internet Bawling.

In addition to hosting his own YouTube channel, “Mac Lethal” hosts a show on KRBZ’s 96.5, which broadcasts in and around Kansas City, Missouri.

But he’s also a hip hop artist, and as part of the show, he takes lyrics fans send in and raps them back out to his listeners. One fan, Darcy, doesn’t even care much for rap music, but that’s one segment she always enjoys.

So she recently sent in a poem she wrote, and you better have your Kleenex box handy. This one’s a real tear-jerker.

When Darcy was diagnosed with bone cancer and started chemotherapy, her husband knew just the thing to cheer her up: a puppy! They named him “Muffins,” and he remained by her side, faithful and true, from start to finish: “I swear the love from my sweet puppy made me better,” wrote Darcy.

Then, less than a year later, Muffins started showing “strange behaviour.”

“I eagerly read the lyrics of the song and was absolutely moved to tears by it,” Mac Lethal later said. Read on for the full song:

My name is Darcy and I’d like to tell my story
about my best friend who’s in another category
see I was always happy, I took care of myself
I enjoyed life, I always stayed in good health,
When I was 52, my telephone rang
My doctor told me the results from my biopsy came,
he sounded so upset, hurt by his tone,
he told me I had cancer in my bones
I was in shock. I was out of breath.
Up until this moment I was never scared of death.
but when you find out, you have cancer
it’s like the grim reaper rings your doorbell and waits for you to answer
When I was going through chemotherapy
My husband walked in with a gift just for me
It was a puppy. Instantly I loved him.
My sweetest baby boy. I named him Muffins.

From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
You’re my best friend.

My medication used to keep me up at night
I felt so weak didn’t have the strength to fight
Muffins could feel it, he understood my plight
And he radiated energy that made me feel alright
At times I swore death was coming soon, it’s what I feared,
I’d snuggle Muffins and quietly let out my tears,
I’d tell him you are such a precious little doggy
I felt him pull the sickness out of my body
He took away my pain. He took away my tears.

I finally got the phone call after a couple years
My doctor said I have some great news,
I’m about to wipe away your pain and your blues,
I want you to sit down and listen
Your cancer has gone into remission!
I cried tears of joy.
I felt like I could live forever.
I swear the love from my sweet puppy made me better.

From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
You’re my best friend.

Not even 9 months later
Muffins started showing strange behavior
we wouldn’t eat, he wouldn’t play, he wouldn’t move
this wasn’t my baby, he wasn’t in his best mood
His heart beat sounded frantic in his chest
We took him to the vet and ran some tests

The Vet didn’t call me back for 2 weeks
but when he called me I simply couldn’t speak
I remember when the telephone rang
I remember being crushed by the pain
he sounded so upset, hurt by his tone
he told me that Muffins that his cancer in his bones
it shocked me, broke the heart inside my ribs
it’s the cancer left my body and entered his.
within a year, my baby boy was gone
I hope I can him alive forever with this song.
