I know I haven't been around
To check up one the latest
What could have taken up that time?
I haven't got the faintest
Well, actually, I guess I lie
'Cause I know what's gone down
Life has a way of throwing you curves
At times, it kicks you around
My dad, well, he has cancer
He's struggled for awhile
But as of now, he's doing good
So I sit here with a smile
Then life threw us for another loop
I always seemed to be sick
The doctor said it was only the flu
And I should get over it quick
But that's not how it all turned out
A tumor squished my lung
X-rays, biopsy's, CT Scans and surgery
I can't say it was very much fun
Life can be a funny thing
It can make you laugh or cry
It can bring you joy and happiness
Or make you ask the question 'why?'
But I know through all the struggles
This one thing is true
No matter what life throws into my path
I have a God who will see me through!
