The Bridge to Survival
by Pat Godfrey McRee
Ordinary woman … me.
‘Til cancer called and
Rocked my world.
Then someone offered a hand of hope
And a healing stream of magic words ...
“There’s something that outshines ordinary;
we’ll find it as we cross this bridge together.”
A short walk ...
Ordinary woman turned survivor ...
Looking back ...
Holding out a hand
for the next ordinary woman.
