For Sam

Tiny hands are trying
Determined legs keep forging on
Frustrated eyes crying
Another slip of childhood gone

Resilient mind learning
Working so hard to do his best
Besieged body burning
His spirit crying out for rest

But he'll be victorious!
For, God is with him every day
Strength and mercy, glorious
Carrying His child all the way

    Yes, he will be! Poor little angel, at least he has such loving, caring family members at his side as he fights a fight he will win for sure! Still in my prayers. Beautiful tribute to a very special child. Cannot wait to hear news of a total recovery. Blessings always. Love, Shar
