Observance of my then Fiancé as she battled Cancer. A battle that she ultimately lost.

Rea

A brilliant smile sent

From a mostly bald head.

A word of encouragement

From a hospital bed.

 

How does she stay smiling

With Chemo in her veins

How does she encourage living

As her own life wanes.

 

I wish I could replace her

But I wouldn’t have her grace.

I wish I could heal her

And look endlessly on her face.

 

Soon she will go, and here, I will stay,

But our faith tells us we will be together, someday.
