 The Journey of a Breast Cancer Fighter

Lyrics: Elvira P. Galang / Music: Shigemi Yoshioka


Sleepless nights, deep dark fears, guilt and blame
Confusions, these are what I go through
As I confront my affliction and I asked God
Why me and what have I done to deserve this?

But then, gradually I came to realize
the meaning behind this suffering.
Life’s challenges we must confront
With fortitude and strong faith.

Refrain:

Hold my hands and let me know
I’m not alone in this journey
I might be tired and weary
But not discouraged with you by my side,

It’s hope, not pain and fear
That I feel with this strength I discovered
The path, though dim and uncertain
Will lead to a redeeming journey.

When I embrace grieving sister
As I feel the depth of her suffering
I realized that reaching out to a fellow afflicted
Ease one’s burden and pains..

Win or lose, it doesn’t really matter
It’s how one celebrates life’s blessing,
When one’s life is spent caring for others,
Then death is just another journey and not an end.
