Cancer is a real menace friend, which brings on an ominous end,
A time when suffering can be rife, with an early exit from this life,
This as life takes a major change, as many things stay the same,
Bringing much anguish to a family, in ways, they have yet to see.
Though cancer affects me and you, its menace has its limits too,
Limits on the devastating effect, upon those lives it has wrecked;
Regarding the victims, I speak of; cancer cannot cripple the love,
Oneís love, that remains intact, despite cancerís relentless attack.
Cancer cannot shatter our hope, as through it God helps us cope,
With The Lordís sustaining grace, cancer cannot corrode our faith;
Though its ailing effects increase, cancer canít destroy our peace,
A peace, that God instills in us, through the Spirit of Christ Jesus.
Though death may be cancerís will, friendships cancer cannot kill,
Also, it cannot suppress memories, of loving friends and families,
As the ill effects continue to rage, cancer cannot silence courage,
For we know that this entire life, is truly sustained by Jesus Christ.
By this courage we donít fear it, as cancer canít conquer our spirit,
Though in a body it will take its toll, cancer cannot invade our soul,
Or lessen Godís Resurrection Power, even during the darkest hour,
As a member of the Body of Christ, cancer canít steal Eternal Life.
