Battling with You?

I'd like to share with you something very dear to my heart that you may, or may not, know. There have been a number of tragic deaths in my family. To name a few, both my mother and grandmother died of cancer, and shortly before my mother's death, I lost my uncle to suicide. My foster sister also was killed by a drunk driver. My mother was only 49 years old when she died, and her mother was only 56 years old. It is my hope that you know regardless of what "inner turmoil" and/or "external battle" you may be fighting, there are people that care and will go to "battle" beside you:

Battling with You: I am Here
By: Annette Thomas

Victory in an actual battle
Is achieved when one of the
Opposing sides forces the
Other to abandon its mission,
Surrender its forces, or retreat.

I am not here to force some
Strategical plot or mission
Planning on you. I am
Simply here to say…

Although the warfare of
Health can sometimes
Be exhausting, know
That I am here.

Know that you need not
Fight against the inner turmoil
And external battle alone.
I am here.

Be the struggle long or short,
I shall live, love, laugh and
Learn with you.  You need
Not ask for I am here.
