Ascend the stairs into the Light

Such a load she had to bear, unbeatable pain was always there;
She was so brave and dignified; despite it all, she seldom cried;

When told she wouldn't make it through, she insisted there was more to do;
She wasn't ready to give in yet; stronger chemo was her bet;

She had such plans; she had to live; continue fighting so she could give,
the world her love and heart and soul; To beat the demon was her goal;

Our Lord had different plans for her; she'd be well, He had the cure;
Ascend the stairs into the light; it's okay my love, give up the fight;

Go with Our Lord through Heaven's door; find out the plans He has in store;
I'll see you once again, someday; until that time, I'll make my way.
