A sweet, lovely lady close to my heart.
A mother twice over,
has a tumor in the brain, but she also has
a headstrong strain.
In the morning she enters
the operating place, a big smile on her face.
Her husband in tears. His hands clasped together.
Parents, in-laws, friends near and far,
their faith in God well above par.
In there, she’ll be for eight hours,
We pray to welcome
her with flowers.
– written with all my love for you.
