I wrote this poem for my sister Gail, who lost her husband to bile duct cancer. She told me that is brought a smile to her face and comforted her. She is also a BC survivor of 15 years.
Please feel free to copy this and share it with anyone you might think would benefit from it.
 
"The Gifts"
The struggle is over, the fighting is done.
One battle lost, and one war won.
The gift of life has passed away,
Replaced by a better gift, I pray.
 
For those who have been left behind,
He's left some gifts for you to find.
The gift of Peace, the quiet within,
The gift of Joy to smile again.
 
The gift of Hope for happier days,
The gift of His Love in soft gentle ways.
The gift of Memories large or small,
Held within your heart for quick recall.
 
The gift of Angels to surround you with care...
Feel the whisper of their wings as they hover there.
The Angels sent from the Light above,
To comfort, protect, with magnificent love.
 
Please use these gifts each and every day.
For each one is special in its own way.
God sent these gifts at special request
From the one who is now content and at rest.
 
Carol French
