Heaven's Door

I dedicate this to my sister-in-law, Anita Whittaker, God be with you

She arises every morning
with a sparkle in her eyes
She looks out across the fields
thinks of him and cries

Life has never been easy
for the woman she is today
Striving hard to please this life
to do good things each day

Wife,mother,sister,daughter
friend to those who know
Anita is a child of God
with a lot of seeds to sow

Day by day she struggles
with a demon I call "Big C"
We know our Lord will heal her
she'll be healthy, safe and free

This battle that she lives with
is one of many she has had to face
It's sad to watch her suffering
but she does it with such grace

A woman of pride and honor
who will fight to the bitter end
A woman I call my sister
but mostly I call friend

I'll pray God gives her strength
to battle this ultimate war
I know He will hold her hand
till He greets her at Heavens' Door
