#TBT PINK PRIDE: Four Little Words Poem

Four Little Words

Isn't it amazing, what a shock

Four Little Words can cause?

How they can take your breath away

And bring everything to a pause.

I got home from work and took that call,

Looking back, I really had no clue.

Four Little Words would be spoken

To change my entire point of view.

Quietly, Four Little Words were said:

"I. Found. A. Lump."

Instantly, I sank into my chair,

And my adrenaline began to pump.

I had so many questions

But, honestly, no words came.

Because of those Four Little Words

I knew that life would never be the same.

Two years of sickness, ups and downs

Of tears, chemo and change.

Made us appreciate each and every day,

Those Four Little Words were to blame.

Awareness, Early Detection helped saved her life.

Courage, Strength, Love helped drive her.

To transform those dreaded Four Little Words to

I. Am. A. Survivor.
