Why Her?

December 25, 2010
It took us all by surprise
No one Imagined
It would be her

I wouldn't say she was as
Healthy as a horse
Because horses get sick too
She was the healthiest
Most active and
God fearing
Woman anyone could know in a lifetime
On earth

No one expected her to be the one
To be attacked by this disease
That has taken so many
From the world in which they were brought into
At the beginning

It helps
But also brings her more pain
Crying Jags
Burning feet
Shedding hair
Failing skin

The citizen who
Spent most of her time
In the cold Oregon air
Is now in pain from jack frosts breath
Contacting her skin

Our prayers and the doctors treatments
Are our only hope
In this cruel
Point in time

How long she will live,
Nobody knows
