My apologies to the reader who sent me a poem request. I would be honored to write a poem for your daughter’s wedding on Aug 24, but before I could respond to you, the email disappeared into cyberspace.
Please resend your request with some of the qualities you love about your daughter, and words that come to your mind when you think of her.
I hope this reaches you. I have done a major search in my inbox, deleted, junk, spam, all to no avail. I’m sorry I didn’t hit reply right away.
Fingers crossed here that I hear from you.
TRUSTING AND BELIEVING
Waiting, trusting, believing
that results from my CT Scan
will help a team of surgeons decide
if surgery is something to plan.
Having chemo for twenty-two months
is not something I ever expected,
but I have coped amazingly well,
much better than was projected.
“You’re still here!” my surgeon stated,
my oncologists are also surprised.
Power of prayer and a positive attitude
are being seen and recognized.
I have requested, from the start,
that friends and family envision me healed.
I don’t want pity or negative thoughts─
those deter healing from being revealed.
So, dear readers, I’m asking again
for your continued support.
I love and appreciate each one of you
as you read my healing reports.
There’ll be some big decisions to make
even if surgery is a green light.
I’ll keep trusting and believing
that I’ll continue to be alright.
Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends and family. Here is the song I wrote for Canada’s 150th Anniversary, with a timelesss message.
