Another Time Around

This week we learned of a new tumor.
It is where I can see and feel.
We don't know what the treatment will be,
But the tumor and spirit can heal.

No one knows the path of cancer,
But we persevere in spite of its wrath.
That storm has been weathered before
As God gives us peace in his path.

If this is the last of that insult,
If I never have any more,
I'll rejoice in its healing again,
Or I'll rejoice with God evermore.
