The Chelsea midfielder posts a moving poem on Instagram after the death of his mother

Willian has taken to Instagram to dedicate a heartbreaking message to his mother after she died following a long battle with cancer.

The Chelsea forward revealed his mum’s two-and-a-half year struggle in September on the social media website as Willian bravely lifted the lid on his pain watching his parent suffer from the disease.

Willian was away on international duty over the past 10 days or so as Brazil were 5-0 winners against Bolivia before a 2-0 victory over Venezuela on Wednesday night.

The Chelsea midfielder scored in the 2-0 victory but Willian’s joy was short-lived after his mother sadly lost her battle to cancer.

Willian posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following poem as his caption:

Mother
In the sky is your place
Where will you be now
Where do you live
Left you so much
After you left here
Just asking
Because I’m so sure
It is in heaven that you are
Yeah near Jesus Christ
I’m sure it’s your place.
Because for you to be holy
You don’t need canonize
Just be the mother that was
To Sanctify.
Don’t think I’m hurt
By punishments to me data
Because between the mother and son
Always all is forgiven.
Can you believe that I’m fine
Because between the punishment and love
Did you do with that I would follow
Definitely a good way.
I miss you so much
That’s true
But I still accept
Because we live together
For all eternity.
I’m still here on earth
To his teachings to be faithful
So I can like you
Also have the kingdom of heaven.
Then we’ll meet
Have detached from the earth
To participate
Dreamed of eternal life.

The Brazil international scored his second Premier League goal of the season in a 2-0 victory over promoted side Hull City at the KCOM in the west London side’s final game ahead of the international break.
