The spirit is truly a remarkable thing,
a ray of hope each new day brings.
For a person can be broken on many levels,
a freak accident left your body disheveled.
The healing process is a long road ahead,
I’m thankful you’re alive ~ you could have been dead.
At times, you’ll want to throw in the towel,
your mood impatient ~ your attitude foul.
Your family and friends will get their fill,
through tear-filled eyes that threaten to spill.
God spared your life for His own reasons,
you will be around for many more seasons.
Just know that I pray for you every day,
even when I’ve run out of things to say.
God hears my plea, whether silent or spoken,
an unbreakable spirit, can heal a body that is broken.
