   here she sits in the hospital again
it seems her test will never end
   she'll bend and sway like a mighty oak
but never break, so full of hope
   she inspires everyone she meets
what hair is left she keeps so neat
   todays new test will be over soon
then the staff will take her back to her room
   but the stars at night are brighter now
and with the morning comes the sun
   with all the new treatments and people who care
we have the illness on the run
   if you would ever meet a child like this
it would be a moment that you would hold dear
   but prepare yourself, you'll soon be like me
