For a Woman Fighting Cancer

For Jeanne who will soon feel strong and healthy again.

© 2011, Lee Goldberg

It’s often said before the dawn
that darkness reigns and hope is gone.
Right now I know that’s the way you feel.

But dawn will come. You’ll see the sun.
One day your struggle will be done.
And you will be quite different when you heal.

Simple things will bring great joys,
the sky, a breeze, a child’s new toys,
a lovely flower or a pretty dress.

A favorite song, a warm embrace,
a cozy crackling fireplace,
a lovers kiss or tender soft caress.

Like others who will fight your fight
and make it back into the light
you’ll always have a wondrous inner glow.

Each day will be a precious treasure.
Little things will give great pleasure.
And every day your inner strength will grow.
