Let the Children Lead

In a way it’s unfair

that she should bear

such a burden.

She did not ask for

the hand she’s been dealt.

Yet the game is what it is.

There is no other way but

forward,

through pain and weakness,

missed moments and

what might have been.

But she will endure, with

a far greater heart than

her age might suggest.

She is a warrior, a fighter,

an example by which

we all can learn.

No matter the outcome,

I have no doubt

she will be okay.
