This is a short poem dedicated to my Nephew, Bradley.  He is a young man, only 21 years old, and is currently undergoing treatment for Cancer.  I am in awe of his positive outlook, which shows wisdom beyond his years, and provides him the strength necessary to press forward.  His bright light was the inspiration that led me to share his journey with you.

Inspiring DragonlyLife happens and struggles come

It is a simple fact you cannot hide from

In these times though there will be a friend

Offering a smile and lending a hand

Humbled and grateful because they care

You begin to realize love is everywhere

With the help of one, and then another

Hope will blossom as you recover

Faith and courage this journey requires

But we travel together, this family of ours


While each of us have our own journey in life, no one has to travel the path alone.  Choosing to be there for one another is a simple but selfless act, that can provide love and comfort to many.

“So long as we love we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I would almost say that we are indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.”
