My birthday poem

My gorgeous niece who will graduate as a doctor in the summer wrote this poem for my birthday…I wanted to share it with you all…I think all of us fighters deserve this….

I didn’t find my hero in a fairy tale book
There was no knight, or princess, nor dragon nor cook
She appeared from the real world like armour shining bright
Filling earth and those around her with beauty strength and light

She came to fight a villain that humans cannot see
She keeps it all inside of her to protect her family
She laughs and reads and sings to us, and smiles through her pain
And despite the madness going on she still remains (half) sane

Her attitude is determination each day she strives to succeed
To defeat the monster hiding, to get better and exceed
She lives this life each day, stepping forward to something new
Her courageousness and motivation keeps on shining through

No matter what life throws at her and despite all that seems unfair
To her giving up is not an option, it is a quality so rare
She is a survivor of life’s darkness and an inspiration to all
Capable of everything and more, she will rise not fall

There is just one thing I ask of her to promise that she’ll do
To beat this thing, to keep the faith, and carry on being you
She is loved by many, and admired by us all
So please know I am here, even if it’s just a call
