This blessing,

Which we at times
Take for granted.

Waking fitfully,
Eyes open,

When illness
Or life's pain

Those that have traveled
Cancer's ragged path

That have found hope and healing

Knowing that strength
New found awareness

Of each breath,
Each kiss,
Each smile

Means everything
Is everything

Blessed with second chances
Blessed with higher purpose

Knowing the true grace of
Fighting, healing, and surviving.

Realizations here
By me,
Of one who has seen this grace and joy.
