One Autograph for a Ten Year Old


Leukemia cells.

A ten year old boy lies quietly in bed,

He’d rather be outside playing instead,

His spirit is strong as he welcomes each day,

As he looks at the tubes that keep him at bay,

His smile is there even when he’s in pain,

His treatments are dreadful but he rarely complains,

He’s a brave young man unless tempted to cry,

When he sees the fear in someone’s eyes,

Too young for cancer to put him in strife,

But it’s there uninvited to control his life,

The doctors are doing the best they can do,

They’re waiting to see if the chemo comes through,

Being careful with our words to keep his spirits high,

To meet his wishes the family would like to try,

Signatures he’s requested to place on his board,

From celebrities who are willing of their own accord,

Although bedridden, his eyes would dance,

Knowing someone out there gives him a chance,

Leukemia is not an easy disease to subdue,

Signatures would lift his spirits, perhaps from you,

If you’re a star in sports, music, or screen,

It will make his day for your name to be seen,

Politicians and writers, you’re included too,

Please be sure you include what you do,

If you’re a friend or relative of a fabulous star,

Send those autographs from wherever you are,

His condition is critical, he’s confined to a bed,

The hospital has limits, and no visitors can tread,

If you can meet his request just simply reply,

Mail a short note with autograph to the little guy,

If you would like his address to be sent,

Ask me for his information in a comment.

    1. I agree with you. It’s a bad disease but there’s always hope.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

  1. This touched me. When I was in high school, I met the most amazing man (young man) I have ever met. He was battling a rare form of cancer ??? in which there were nights he went to bed and woke up with a tumor the size of a baseball on his leg. He endured chemo, radiation, surgeries, his hair fell out, came back in, fell out again, and the entire time I knew him he smiled. He loved life. Every minute he was alive. Sorry this is so long winded and it’s a blog no no but I couldn’t help it. He is in a place free of all pain and I was blessed to know him for the short time I did. I will never forget you Graham! God bless all the children who suffer and hope. . .

    1. This young man has a beautiful attitude. You’d like him. He must be a lot like Graham. Graham won’t be forgotten. God bless all the children who suffer and hope. Thank you, Pam. Keep this young man in your thoughts and prayers also. Dan

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

      1. I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t try.

        May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. I hang out with common folk and I haven’t touched the “stars” yet. The boy is stage four leukemia but I’m hoping he can rally. In the meantime I’m doing what I can.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

  2. 😦 It’s a tragedy whenever someone is affected by cancer. It’s especially heartbreaking when it’s a child. It may be a cliché, but children represent hope for this world. I’m not a celebrity, nor do I know any celebrity, but my heart goes out to him.

    1. Thanks for your compassion and kind words. I will forward your message. Thanks again.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
