A friend died today
We just said goodbye to him
He was in a fight with cancer
A fight he didn't win

We met at the treatment center
Were friends right from the start
No talk of death ­ just life
And how we play a part

He showed the signs of battle
As the cancer attacked
But as the cancer destroyed his body
His spirit remained intact

A person's body may be destroyed
As the cancer takes its toll
But if you refuse to let it
It won't destroy your soul.
