To show that I understand your pain

When I was young so long ago,
Threatened I was though I didn't know,
My parents feared as to my fate,
Afraid that the doctors would be too late.

And the doctors did all that they could,
For the fear of my parents they understood,
They opened my skull and saw the mass,
Knowing that they had to work fast.

Many at the time thought those efforts to be in vain,
As my life the tumor continued to drain,
But those doctor's efforts weren't destined to be lost,
For God had not let my death be the cost.

To show that I understand what it is you're going through,
My choir is here to carol for you,
For Christmas is the time of giving; as God's done,
And I do hope this will bring peace to everyone

Ahh a really beautiful poem. Tumor is the most dangerous word to hear, I remember my uncles reaction how such a strong person falls when he came to know that his beautiful daughter has a brain tumor that s cancer, unfortunately she dies, and the operation of tumor, if it s non malagnent is again reslly difficult, may God savw everyone from this disease

Don't believe me...I still have pics of my brain from that time.

I like to think that difficult times like this help us to commiserate with each other on a deeper level. That's what I like to think, anyway! Still, even if I'm wrong, I'm glad you are writing.

Thank you so much, most of my poetry is based off experience both good and bad.
