(Preface: No, this is not completely about LadyBug, so don't get scared!)

She Is        by Choral Responses

emerging from eternity,
grasping for life,
breathing the new world,
unfamiliar with strife,
her name is Baby,
and she is Loved.

shining in shadow,
dancing through years,
smiling the sunshine,
defiant of fears,
her name is Daughter,
and she is Loved.

standing with strength,
living her life,
giving herself,
becoming a wife,
her name is Woman,
and she is Loved.

Bearing her children,
acquainted with tears,
nurturing the future,
banishing fears, 
her name is Mother,
and she is Loved.

discovering an ailment,
seeking a balm,
receiving harsh answers,
finding her calm,
her name is Patience,
and she is Loved.

enduring the treatments,
receiving support,
living for tomorrow,
calling on the Lord,
her name is Survivor,
and she is Loved.

returning to eternity,
receiving new life,
escaping this world's bonds,
released from all strife,
her name is Beloved,
and she is Home.

You should submit this to the Ensign!

This is nice! And I agree with Delirious.

Inklings said...

I like it, too. What inspired this?

Mr. Giggles said...

Most of this was inspired by LadyBug, but it was solidified when a friend of hers died the morning following our Relay for Life. She battled cancer for five years, and I have taught all five of her kids.
