Get Rid Of The Advertisements


She couldn't wait to go to school
she thought it would be such fun.
She couldn't wait to be a teen,
for that's when life begun.

She couldn't wait to be a bride,
dressed up in a gown of white.
She couldn't wait to be a mom,
she was sure she'd get it right.

She couldn't wait to be grandma,
with little ones running around.
She couldn't wait for each new day
as out of the bed she would bound.

But now she waits with fearful dread
to learn what her future holds;
she prays this cancer can be beat,
she prays she can still grow old.

She couldn;t wait....but she does.
