It took us all by surprise
No one Imagined
It would be her

I wouldn't say she was as

But also brings her more pain
Crying Jags
Burning feet
Shedding hair
Failing skin

Spent most of her time
In the cold Oregon air
Is now in pain from jack frosts breath
Contacting her skin

Our prayers and the doctors treatments
Are our only hope
In this cruel
Point in time

How long she will live,
Nobody knows
