This poem was inspired by my friend JennyLynn Patrick with whom I had many conversations. I was battling Breast Cancer, and she Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Today June 21st,2005 she lost her battle with cancer. She was a trooper to the end. I dedicate this to her memory for she inspired this poem when she told me one day that cancer for us ... is a bend in the road,a turning point in our lives...and I said to her wow...this is a poem...and I hung up the phone and thus this poem was born ...labor was 15 minutes and delivery..well you decide...

I came to a point in my life everything looked so bleak

My health situation was so grim I could barely speak

I got so down and out I had to turn to my best friend...

On my knees, arms outstretched, I thought it was the end.

With tears in His eyes, He said to me

" Rise up, rise up my friend.'

He placed my hands in His wounds,

He told me, " it is not the end."

"It's a bend in the road; a moment of truth;

A turning point in your life.

You know you can count on me even when there is no strife.

I am always here for you; I am Jesus;

I am your Best Friend.

I was there in the beginning; I am there in the middle;

I will be there in the end,

My name is Jesus Christ; I am the Son of God...

I gave my life on the cross for you,

I didn't shed my precious blood

Because I had nothing else to do.

I am Jesus Christ; I am your Best Friend;

I didn't have to die that faithful day,

I could've changed everything;

I have the power, my friend, I could've walked away.

But I chose to carry the cross; I chose to suffer;

I chose to die on Calvary...

With arms outstretched,

My Precious Blood, was shed to redeem thee

No greater love than this has any man shown;

I died on the cross for thee

My love is unconditional;

My love is free;

I am your Best Friend through eternity."

An inspirational, loving tribute.

In 1923 in The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran shared with us this truth:

"And ever has it been that love knows not
its own depth until the hour of separation."

God be with you, Pamela,

This tribute is so beautiful and heartfelt. I work with Cancer patients daily and the disease robs them of so much..... I salute anyone that can overcome the dreadful ending and be victorious. But then when we love Jesus My best friend makes the homecoming also joyous. I am sorry for the loss of your dear friend....

Light & Peace,
