Standing With You Poem

Standing With You


My Blue Dots Pin

you told me you have cancer
and I don’t know what to do.
but I want to let you know
I support what you’re going through.

my words are insufficient
for how much can I say?
for to talk about your cancer
Is not how to spend the day.

so this pin I’ll wear to let you know
I’m thinking of you each day.
for my thoughts are always with you
even when I’m far away.

it’s my non-verbal message to let you know
I am with you each step of the way.
you are in my thoughts and prayers
as I travel throughout my day.
