To A Young Girl Dying Of Cancer.

Updated on November 22, 2009



A Peace To Ponder.



There will be many sunrises
and sunsets yet to face,
Bobbi Sue,
illness postpones nothing
when one savors
life at it's fullest.

Whether standing
on the edge of eternity,
or newly emerged
from the womb.

You are cherished now
even by those
who do not know you,
we hope hard for you
and wish you only
the creme of life's sweetness.

There may be struggles
but your strength lies in
the shield of love's power.
surround yourself with
friends and family,
lean into their warmth,
at this chilling time.

Seek console with God,
he will heal you,
or may welcome you
into his arms.
Both will be beautiful.

Spend each moment
immersed in
the splendour
of this world,
Be positive that
you will beat it.

Insist that it
must leave you,
as you inhale
the flowered scents
of nature's bounties,
share the wet bliss
of a puppies kiss,
tumble in the humus
of a Fall's
multi-colored passing
that can't be prevented.

Make lots of plans
and plan to be there.

There is always hope,
but there will also
always be you,
whether here or beyond,
and whether you leave,
or stay, you will always remain
in the hearts of those who love you.

That is something to live for.

Begin now,
and I will send this
to you many years from now,
when I am old and frail
and I too am
facing the savoring
of what's left.

Godspeed to your healing,
and may his calming hand steady you,
on the rocky road ahead.
