My friend Steve needs our prayers for a miracle, he has cancer throughout his body. May God Bless You All.

Thought I would stop in to say hello
Only to find your not at work
I was told your in the hospital
My only thought was to be with you
So to the hospital I drove

Walking down the hall to his room
Entering his room not knowing what I will see
Three bags of medicine dripping into his veins
A strong man weakened from this disease
As I pull the curtain back he sees its me, he gives me a smile from ear to ear

As sick as he is he gets out of bed
And greats me with such a warm hug
You shouldn't be out of bed I say
He says for now you are the best medicine I could receive
We sat and talked openly about his cancer

From his waist down he has trippled in size
How the tumors are eating his insides
Holding my hands he then looked at me
He said with a smile
I'm happy and truly blessed

I have a wonderful wife that loves me
Six beautiful children that I love
Friends like you that care about me
God has blessed me with so much in life
I looked at him eyes filled with tears

As he wiped my cheek
He said don't cry for me
I want you to be happy
Just the way I am
And most of all count your blessings
