Four years ago
You were in a fight for your life
Stage three and a lump as big as a grapefruit.
That Christmas was the worst one that I can remember
For all of us
But it was hardest on you
For you lost a part of yourself.
While you felt alien after surgery
We wanted to cry
Tears of fear and tears of joy
Tears of sorrow and tears of thankfulness.
Good and experienced doctors made you better
And thanks to God
Breast cancer did not take you away from us.
And every day we thank Him that you are still here
To share many more Christmases with us
And many more new years and birthdays.
With a lot of help
You won the fight
And you are still here
To share your story of triumph and love.
