Chronic Prayer –
May my body be a little more kinder today
And let me show the world that I try every way
To be all that I can. Inside and out.
And believe in myself. Despite all who doubt.
And no matter how hard or how long this road
I have carried myself and I have carried my load
With dignity, faith, hope and belief
And try never to let myself get lost in the grief
Of losing the body and path that I had
But I know it’s ok to mourn. It’s ok to be sad.
If those times should come may they pass quickly by
And I will remember to think kindly so tomorrow I can try
To start over again, because even if they are not here
My chronic family are out there and they are precious and dear.
