My friend was diagnosed with Leukemia twice. I wrote this poem to give her strength.
Faith is simply your fear reverse
You can get through it but you must believe first,
Lost by exhaustion and paralyzed by fear
You will find your strength as long as faith is near.
Strength hidden below the surface an amount unseen
Stirred by prayer and simply maintained by belief,
Found in a place so deep inside of you
The power of prayer coupled with faith will guide you through.
Brought out by your will and your deepest desires
This thing called faith will set your life on fire,
It will provide you shelter in this tumultuous storm,
And will be the coat of armor that you must don.
Faith along with prayer becomes the foundation for belief
Giving you the exorbitant amount of strength you need,
Strength becomes the fiber of your weary soul
Reminding you that God brings comfort remaining in control,
Fear replaced by faith, will wipe your tears away...
Giving you the strength to stand tall for another day.
