Poetry by Jeff Green


For the bravest and most beautiful

The bravest and most beautiful I know
Will face another week of mortal fight
She’ll fill my heart with such a warming glow
While gathering the strength to meet her plight

The pain she’ll feel will rip my soul in two
Yet in the end we know that it must be
This is the only thing that she can do
To save her life and set her spirit free

Radiation kills the cancer cells
But hurt the patient in most other ways
She is pulled through all the worst of hells
And every day’s the blackest of all days

Take heart from all this love I send
The cancer not the love is set to end
