Did you ever watch the sky turn dark to light?
With each minute that you sit the world gets bright.
The dew upon the roses in the dawn.
The softness of the grass upon your lawn.

The flowers you pass unnoticed on your way
while going to the mailbox everyday.
The cracked lines upon the asphalt in your drive.
Funny how suddenly the world seems so alive.

Donít know why I never noticed it before,
the funny creaking sound of my front door.
The sounds of cereal poured into a bowl
hollow tones that echo in my soul.

If I donít sleep then not a moment will I miss
until the angel of death gives me a kiss.
Though Iím not sure that this will be the end
if in my shoes what things would you do friend?

Would you watch your children laughing in the park
or sit alone and hold them in the dark?
Please tell me now which choices I should choose.
Iím only 29 and have so much to loose.

Iím frightened can you hear it in my words?
You be frightened too if you heard what I heard..
"Youíve cancer cells, their growing rapidly,
lets get you scheduled for a biopsy."

I guess its only something time will tell
whether these are benign or malignant cancer cells.
Please pray for me for Iíd do the same for you
God in heaven tell me what Iím supposed to do.

God and I are not on the best of terms but I'm sure He hears my prayers for you too.

Lucie: You take one day at a time, one hour at a time, you talk to your hearts content to anyone who will listen but your friends will always be here for you, day or night..are there any support groups in your area...and lastly, it's ok to be scared..

Big hugs sweetheart

Lucie, I don't know what to say...I'm just sitting here with tears running down my cheeks, why this happens to the most beautiful people...you are light of laughter to me...you don't deserve this...not that anyone does. Please tell me if there's anything you need from me...Love you girl.
