Thanks for your reply, Juanita...
In reading some of the other responses to this poem, I was surprised by how many people don't think about this...
but I think I never thought about it when I was younger either.
In our youth, we are always invincible...
We think that nothing will ever happen to us, but as we age...we begin to feel our vulnerablility, and I have been feeling quite vulnerable this past year.

If thoughts of the best and prayers of friends are to figure in the equation, then you have an army behind you of support.  That combined with your obvious strength and understanding alone gives you an upper hand.  You seem to handle life's toughest with great inner self and you are admired for that. God bless and continued prayers.

I lean against the wind pretend I am weightless and in this moment I am happy

Thanks so much, Mark...
for your reply and for that lovely, though somewhat undeserved compliment.
During this time, I have actually felt that I had no choice but to be strong.
Thanks so much for the continued prayers
~ big hugs of thanks

Thanks so much, Lauren...
I hope you are right about that...and I am sure glad that you are okay.
You had all of us so very worried last week.
Thanks for being a survivor.

Deares Lyra, I just saw this poem, and I wish I could take your worries away. But as for the questions, after losing my Grandmother, and reading A LOT, I have come to the conclusion that we all pass to a better place, and there to be rejoined with our loved ones.
Not that it makes it any less scary, but I am really starting to believe that..after many years of questioning.

Lyra, as you know, for several months I had to ask myself some very similar questions.  I was quite fortunate, but still have five to eight years to go and the questions continue.  Michelle was right.  Only God knows infinity and in times as uncertain as these it is more important than ever to trust in Him.  God bless you, my friend.  Healing hugs.  You always in my prayers, dear Lyra.

Sandra..
Thanks so much for your reply.
Until my first husband died, 3 yrs ago...I was not truly a believer in an afterlife of any kind.  But when he was dying, he said that he would send me a sign to let me know that he was okay...and he has sent me many of them, and continues to send them to me.
The first one occurred at his burial....
Just as the casket was being lowered into the ground, a big beautiful Tiger Swallowtail butterfly flew up out of the grave and brushed against my cheek.
Butterflies, never go under the ground, and that also had been a year when they sprayed for Gypsy moths...and we had therefore not seen any butterflies.
Everyone who saw it was quite astounded!
To this day, even though I am re-married to a wonderful man...I still feel his presence and he still communicates with me.

Thanks so much, Michael.
I truly appreciate all of your prayers and I would like you to know that you are always in mine, also.
Michelle was definitely right.  There is no way that we can know when our time is up.
I think that everyone....not just those of us who are stricken with a potentially fatal disease, should ask some of these questions because they are part of the infinite tapestry of life and death...just as death is part of life.
~ big thank you hugs
