Pink


She told us she'd be ok
Don't worry
I believed her

Doctors gave us hope
Medical miracles
Too good to be true

Positive attitudes and cheer
Only on the outside
Everyone smiling

She is always strong
Ignoring the pain
Lifting us up

So many tears
In front of no one
Kleenex in the trash

Never giving in to fear
Or admitting a struggle
Unbearable anguish

Resisting sympathy
Instead sharing eternal love
Indestructable mother

Cancer isn't fair
She is unbreakable
Mothers live forever

Right?

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
