Child Of God - Poem by Jean Dament

Once a timid child walked fearfully through life,
Not knowing how to cope with all her strife,
Afraid to open up & express her feelings,
Instead she wandered aimlessly carrying all her failings,
But a tiny light still glowed within her heart;
As she was born of a sweet nature from the start;
And in time her light shone brighter,
Especially after cancer turned her into a fighter,
Becoming then like a flower that grows to full bloom;
And with maturity...the fragrance fills the whole room,
Now this woman has found her way,
Filled with a joy that's surely here to stay;
As God walked in & touched her soul,
Now she reaches out to comfort others...making it her main goal.
