No Words

How can you say what can't be spoken. When deep inside your heart is broken. There's little comfort for what you feel. As you kneel and pray for God to heal. Our Princess Warrior fights silently. Each breath, she takes defiantly. Against a foe that won't relent. Until her energy is all spent. I have no words, what can I say. Nobody thought they'd see this day. We have no answers for our sorrow. Thinking you won't be here tomorrow. We look at pictures filled with life. A sister, mother. daughter, wife. To ponder more is too absurd. I'm done here, not another word.

so sad, I feel like this princess warrior is a family member of whom you write? Very nicely done and heart felt. There was a contest several years ago where you had to use that title No words!!
