To Show that I understand what you're going through
by Kathryn Eddy
When I was young so long ago,
Threatened I was though I didn't know,
My parents feared as to my fate
Afraid that the doctors would be too late.
And the doctors did all that they could,
For the fear of my parents they understood,
They opened my skull and saw the mass
Knowing that they had to work fast.
Many at the time feared those efforts to be in vain,
As my life this tumor continued to drain,
But those efforts weren't destined to be lost,
For God had not let my death be the cost.
To show I understand what it is you're going through
I have brought this message of encouragement to you,
For Christmas is a time for giving-as God's done,
And I do hope this will bring peace to everyone.
