The Race Of Life / Poem by Tahera Mannan

Poem by Tahera Mannan
 
 
The Race Of Life
 
We worked in and worked out
She knelt down in silent prayer
Our bodies shaped without doubt
Unable to see the pain so rare
 
We danced and we sang songs
She gave the best of herself to all
We watched her smile a mile long
Unable to see the fear lurking on the wall
 
And as we soared and ate gala feast
She kept a vigil by the window sill
The disease ate her like a starved beast
Alone she took the chemo, the pain and the pill
 
We fought and watched each other’s back
She went thru some searing days
The angels watched her every track
They were with her all the way
 
Sad and disturbed and neglected we felt
She showed miracles with a smiling face
With strength and hope and confidence
She ran ahead of us in this life’s race.
