The Big “C”

The Big “C”
(Inspirational Poems About Cancer)

The big “C”, I heard someone call it
another just whispered the word –
That we don’t even dare to say cancer out loud
gives it power it doesn’t deserve.

So I’m giving that letter new meaning
and refusing to give in to fear –
By reclaiming the power for you and for me
and by saying these words loud and clear.

Let the “C” be for cure and compassion
let it stand for the candles we light –
And a chorus of voices shouting, you can
to all who will take up this fight.

Let the “C” be for cash contribution
credit or check will work, too –
Let it stand for commitment and checkups and cheer
and the children counting on you.

Let it mean that we know our creator
is beside us each step of the way –
And remind us to call on His strength and His love
and to celebrate every new day.

To everyone facing this challenge
I say it’s a fight we can win –
Tell all who will listen that, starting today
the “C” is for courage, my friend.

I Had My Own Notion Of Grief

I had my own notion of grief. I thought it was a sad time that followed the death of someone you love and you had to push through it to get to the other side. But I’m learning there is no other side. There is no pushing through, but rather, there is absorption, adjustment, acceptance and grief is not something that you complete but rather you endure. Grief is not a task to finish and move on, but an element of yourself. An alteration of your being. A new way of seeing. A new dimension of self. – Gwen Flowers – Acceptance And Grief Quotes For Facebook

Crossing Over Oh Please Don’t Feel Guilty

Crossing Over
(Sympathy Poems)

Oh, please don’t feel guilty
It was just my time to go –
I see you are still feeling sad
And the tears just seem to flow.

We all come to earth for our lifetime
and for some it’s not many years –
I don’t want you to keep crying
you are shedding so many tears.

I haven’t really left you
even though it may seem so –
I have just gone to my Heavenly home
and I’m closer to you than you know.

Just believe that when you say
my name, I’m standing next to you –
I know you long to see me
but there’s nothing I can do.

But I’ll still send you messages
and hope you understand –
That when your time comes to
“cross over,” I’ll be there
to take your hand.
