Today is not the day you die

You can lose the battle and still win the war
As long as you know what you’re fighting for
Because in the end it doesn’t matter how many times you fall
Or all those times you had to crawl

You’ll regret the times you didn’t even try
And all those times you pitied yourself and asked why
More than the things you attempted and failed
Because even the hero loses some fights in those fairy tails

So when you feel you can’t go on anymore
Remember what you’re fighting for
Even now you can rise from it all
This battle may be lost but that doesn’t mean all are

Today is not the day you die
It’s the day you’ll win the fight
And years from now when you’re old and grey
A tale of victory will be told for this day

By Denise Brown
Dedicated to my aunt, Jessica Wyer, who bravely fought breast cancer and won
