As I lay in bed all alone,
This disease wreaks havoc,
Throughout my body and bones…

I remember being so strong and robust,
But everyone's life takes a turn,
And we may die in disgust…

Although I was always afraid of the dark,
I remember sweet days of my youth,
When I ran and laughed in the park…

Now the dark will haunt me again,
And the next time I see it,
It may be the end…

Oh take this illness away from me,
God give me more strength and life,
So the dark won't stalk me so hauntingly…

Dedicated to my father as I stood by his bedside 
and witnessed his last breaths of life… ©2003
