Leukemia's Wrath

Soon after Thanksgiving Day
She felt sick; something was awry,
She had bruises on her arms
They continued down her thighs.
______
Her body felt warm, her hands were cold;
Feverishly, she asked for water,
Her family was so worried; their hearts broken
About the fate of their only daughter.
_____
They rushed her to the doctor, that day
Then to the hospital, they were sent quickly,
The nurses wheeled her to the lab;
They could see she was weak and sickly.
_____
It took awhile for the diagnosis,
They found cancer in her bones
It was leukemia they said;
She would not be going home.
_____
The Leukemia killed her good cells,
Her energy it had taken,
She was always a happy, healthy girl;
They prayed to God they were mistaken.
_____
She cried and asked if she'd been bad,
Is that why she suffers so?
Her parents reassured her that she’s a wonderful daughter;
Then she looked out the window to see the first snow.
_____
The sight of the snow raised her spirits,
She then placed her hands upon her face,
Wondering what her future would bring;
Hoped soon to play in the snow, with God’s grace.
_____
The medications made her weak
They caused her to be nauseated and appalled
That she was losing some of her hair now,
She knew that soon she’d be bald.
_____
Their daughter is now sixteen years old,
In the hospital her family have stayed,
She was not left alone for a moment;
They didn’t want her to feel afraid.
