I see courage when I look into your eyes.
Body weakened by sickness, yet you still try.
I hear you at night when you stifle the cries.
I think, 'There but for the Grace of God, go I.'

I see courage when I look into your face.
You are determined to win, to take first place.
I hear you at night when you get up to pace.
You rarely complain when by pain you're embraced.

I see courage when I look into your soul.
To overcome the enemy is your goal.
I hear you at night trying to gain control.
I see courage as the disease takes its toll.

I hear courage when I hear you singing songs.
Would I have that fortitude, would I be strong?
I hear you at night, God, I scream, 'That's so wrong!'
You deserve better, not this hell that's prolonged.

I see courage when I remember your life.
It feels like someone cut my heart with a knife.
I hear you at night, the memories are rife.
How I miss you, Darling, my sweet, loving wife.

"There but for the Grace of God go I"...this brought tears to my eyes. I can hear this advice as my father said it so many times to his eight children. That one phrase stuck with me all my life. Thanks for this tender poem.

Dear Karla,

This one really ripped at my heart,

Trusting that everything will be well.
