BATTLING BREAST CANCER

BATTLING BREAST CANCER

It all began one Summer day
As a numbness in my breast
At first I thought, it'll go away
My bra is too tight I guess

That evening in the shower
While getting ready for bed
I felt it was my darkest hour
A time that all women dread

The self exam to ease my mind
Caused my heart to suddenly jump
What I had feared that I might find
Was there in a tiny lump

I cried myself to sleep that night
Sleep was fitful at its best
My thoughts were filled with fright
I really got no rest

When morning came, I made the call
The nurse was very kind
She said she didn't mind at all
To give the first appointment she could find

The doctor was sympathetic
His compassion clearly showed
I really was feeling pathetic
I was bearing a heavy load

I was told I had the big C
The fear that I had known
Welled up from deep inside me
I felt so all alone

Through many months of testing
I prayed that he would find
That the mass was not malignant
Lord, please let it be benign

The answer to my prayer came true
The lump was finally gone
I pray this never happens to you
Such fear I've never known

The Great Physician heard my prayer
He can do the same for you
Cast on Him your every care
And He will see you through

    I wish to both of you health and happiness, and yes, I believe that someone sends miracles in ways that are subtle and almost unnoticed. Good luck, friends! G.

    Curtis, this gives me goosebumps. "The Great Physician", I LOVE that! I can imagine the fear your friend must have had, I had a small scare similar to this myself once... You have depicted this scenario so very well... I feel her fear in this.... So many women deal with this, it's sad. I'm glad your friend is ok. I'm sure she looks at life a little differently too, I remember the feeling of like a "second chance" with the good results... Anyway, sorry for rambling.. I really love your poem.
