    I am lying here in bed,
    I know there's something wrong,
    The fatigue and pain is overwhelming,
    And its lasted far too long.

    I try to close my eyes each night,
    Just one night peaceful dreams,
    To reach that point without this pain,
    Will never come it seems.

    Morning it has dawned again,
    The sun, warm upon my face,
    Give me strength to go outside,
    And feel the sunshines warm embrace.

    I try to do as I once did,
    I cannot, for I must rest,
    I try to start but never finish,
    Though I've given it my best.

    At times I can't remember,
    What it was I came her for,
    So I stand there quite dumbfounded,
    I don't know what's what no more.

    I use to be so vibrant,
    Enjoying every moment in my life,
    Crazy but still normal,
    A loving mother and a wife.

    I tell myself to hold on,
    Somewhere there must be hope,
    I cry and pray to God,
    Please, give me strength to cope.

    And when I think I can't go on,
    No more taking days in strife,
    I remind myself of others,
    That go through worse than I in life.

    So I refuse to give up,
    I can fight and hope I win,
    If I turn my back and give up now,
    I'll never know what could have been.

    So, to the Invader in my body,
    You can cause your pain and take your toll,
    But in the end, you lose, I win,
    For you cannot touch my soul!

    I just wanted to thank you all for you kind words. I thought this would help those whom are giving up hope, and getting one step closer to giving in to these terrible diseases that have chose to invade out bodies. Always remember, It can never touch our souls.
    Love,
