Courage Poem

Inspirational Poetry For Cancer Patients

This is for my cousin Linda Pugliese, for strength and support through her battle with cancer. It also served to put some things in perspective and get me off the pity pot I was on after a split off a 20 plus year marriage.

I lost my brother, Bob, 19 years ago. It feels like it was yesterday. I miss him so much...not a day goes by that I don't. I thought we would grow old together, eating spaghetti dinners...

A Wing And A Prayer

©

Published: July 2013

Under the wing of an angel, we feel protected.
Through prayers to God, we feel connected.

Peace is said to be offered on the wings of a dove.
Prayers can bring peace along with hope, faith, and love.

Wings of a jet plane provide a steady flight.
I pray you remain steady and strong through this fight.

Butterflies have wings to fly playfully free,
And free from this monster is what I pray you'll soon be.

Birds spread their wings as they may leave their nest.
We're spreading our prayers that you'll always be blessed.

Go fight and win this battle you didn't start.
On the wings of an angel and prayers from my heart.

At the gym I go to three times a week there is an elderly widower who always smiled and said hello. One day I reached out to touch his arm and he said, "I'd rather have a hug." I gave him a hug and have continued to do so every time we meet. He tells me that hug is what brings him to the gym and gives him something to look forward to on gym days.

I lost a sister to Squamous Cell cancer, a brain tumor. Now my heart has been broken again for another sister is battling breast cancer. I see her getting so tired and worn out. I hope the words of this poem will uplift her spirit to give the strength to continue to fight. She is a fighter, but there are days when she feels so tired, so worn out to where she wants to quit.Thank God for the family support she has to encourage my baby sister to continue to fight on. She finished up all her chemo treatments. Now the radiation for seven weeks started a few days ago. She has to go every day for the seven weeks.

I lost my brother, Bob, 19 years ago. It feels like it was yesterday. I miss him so much...not a day goes by that I don't. I thought we would grow old together, eating spaghetti dinners every Sunday...but that was not to be. Cancer took my beautiful brother from me October 23, 1998. Now here I am today facing another brother with stage 4 bladder cancer. I see him growing so frail and in so much pain as it's now in his bones. I know I will lose him soon, and my heart is broken. No mother or father or gram...no siblings, and now I will be alone to wander and miss them all.
