The Letter

As I opened my E-mail today
my heart felt sorrow,
I just could not find the words to say
will I see my friend upon the morrow

Though the heart fails not
the blood begins it's weakening,
in the lungs the find the clot
the prayers that we are speaking

It hurts you so to take a breath
if walking but ten feet,
fight my friend, and you'll beat death
so yet we may still meet

Friends we are and will always be
of this please rest assured
for in your eyes I'm sure I see
that brightness never blurred

Now rest my friend, build your strength
continue on the fight,
For I shall always pray for you
and will again tonight

God Bless you Jimmy my friend........FIGHT
