Looking in your eyes at the hospital,
you were happy tho,
for you had sat up that day,
a really big personal gain.
Lung cancer is sad
it is really hurtful and bad.
Even heavy drugs couldn't keep the pain at bay,
and you knew, yep, you knew,
that soon you'd have to go away.
Friend death came a knockin'
and left us
and the pain, for you, has gone away.
I'm sorry you suffered, dear lady,
but happy to see you FREE,
you took death by the hand
and left this land...to be a shining star.
I shall always remember your bravery.....
and the smiles, given thru pain.
earth has lost a good woman,
the heavens have gained......
