Ode to a Suffering Daughter

by HarryT

I feel profound sorrow for my daughter in daily pain
My eyes water when I think of her relentless suffering
Headaches, backaches and fatigue a constant drain
No pills or therapy capable of providing any buffering
Wish there would be found a magic cure
Proverbial silver bullet to ease endless hurt
Still she soldier’s on despite her discomfiture
Teaching in spite of this agonizing hair-shirt
Every day I pray to the Lord above for my daughter
Dream researchers will soon discover a remedy
End her struggle with miraculous curing water
Causing her agony to fade from each extremity
I admire her fight despite all she must endure
Please, God, help scientists find a silver cure
