I wrote this poem in honor of the Walk for Wishes 2018 event, of which I was a participant.
All alone, in sickness, pain
Skies of gray – relentless rain
Youth curtailed, a frightful fate
Time goes by – they sit and wait
Little children need your aid
Help them not to be afraid
Find it in yourself to give
Show them there’s still life to live!
Make a wish upon a star
Heed your heart and you’ll go far
On this day, become the dream
Shine your light and let it beam!
