My cousin Deborah is 47 years old. She has cancer. It originated in her brain and has spread . Her precious Mother Bernice is painstakingly taking care of her at home. She's in a hospital bed and hospice is helping. I have asked the poets at AuthorsDen to pray for so many. I ask again for a special prayer for this beautiful young woman. Pray for her comfort and that she doesn't suffer. Pray that the Lord will give this family strength and courage. Thank you AD for your prayers. This family means alot to me.

Watching for the angels
Praying they will wait
Just a little longer
Won't interfer with fate
Let me take care of her
And wipe her pretty face
God in your tender mercy
Send down your saving grace


Watching for the angels
Sometimes I feel them near
How can I let her go, Lord
It's a Mother's greatest fear
The memories she's given me
Are more beautiful than gold
They are forever in my heart
Where they'll never grow old


Watching for the angels
My tears fall like the rain
Under his protective wing
She'll be in no more pain
Please give me a little longer
To sit and hold her hand
And in your infinite wisdom Lord
The strength to understand

Watching for the angels
