DAY118 Again

Well it ain’t any fun when they tell you you have cancer

And it sure don’t help when they say they have no answer

At the time you’ll think it is the greatest curse

Let me tell you there is one thing that’s worse

If they tell you it was gone but now it’s back

When you thought you’d won but you’re still under attack

Talk about taking the wind out of your sails

It’s only tragic if you’re thinking that hope fails

Because hope, my friend did not let you down

No, it carried you across you the rocky ground

And it set you on this water that you know

It will hold you til the breeze begins to blow

Don’t you worry if the tide is still too low

The day will come when your courage starts to grow

Before long you will see it overflow

You may feel that it’s all a bit too slow

But soon enough you’ll remember what you know

It’s never too late to get up and go

Now’s the time to practice what you’ve learned

When the rain comes down let the little light burn

Keep on to the point of no return

Decide that you will do more than survive

Each day is a chance for you to thrive

And thrive you will if you make that your choice

Faith, hope & Love still need a voice

So tell me, what are you waiting for?

Go ahead - - it’s time to leave this shore

You have no idea what’s in store

Between here and the the horizon there is more

The adventure has only just begun

So what if you’re back at square one

Close your eyes and count to ten

Then sail away and do it again
