Widgets My Poetry ~  Light From Within (For Lorna) Magic Lamp: Goal Setting

"Death ends a life, but not a relationship." ~ Jack Lemmon

Light From Within (For Lorna)
my friend, cancer got you
DAMN IT: you had it beat
for seven years
at least.

how did it come back?
all that pain. Again.

(every survivor's worst

And you, a winner, a fighter:
you fought me over and over
with tears and words and promises.

you fought for me
with honesty and a light so bright
it hurts my heart.

sweet Lorna.
at peace now
no more battles,
no more fears:
just lingering light
from within.
