Cancer Babies

Written by: Margeret Bailey

Young, innocent and carefree,
carrying heavy burdens not even
adults could bear,
The plague of a deadly disease,
The cancer babies fight courageously,
oblivious to the outcomes,
Their tiny bodies become ravaged by the
effects of chemo and testing,
Yet, they still manage to be joyful
blessings, accepting their fates 
valiantly, while their parents wallow
in the catastrophe of their illnesses,
They harness wisdom far beyond their
years smiling all the way through,
battling without regrets and tears,
Too young to fear the unknown,
The little ones quietly concede to the pain that
haunts them........
Some, turn the corner and find a new day,
While others succumb  to the weariness,
making their time on earth supernaturally
special.....
