The Strongest Girl I Ever Knew

Average User Rating
Editor's Rating

She never got to dance,

Or go to her own Prom,

She never got the chance,

To forget where she came from.

 

She never got to kiss,

The man she idolized.

She never felt Love's bliss,

'Cause she was paralysed.

 

She never got to talk,

About love with a smile.

She never got to walk,

Down a Church's aisle.

 

She never got to say,

The precious words "I Do".

But she was far and away,

The strongest girl I ever knew.

 

She couldn't brush her hair,

Or put make up on her face.

She couldn't hold you dear,

Or give a warm embrace.

 

She couldn't clasp her hands,

As if in the form of prayer.

She couldn't understand

Why she was in a wheelchair.

 

She never showed her fears,

Or let you hear her cries.

She never showed the tears,

That fell down from her eyes.

 

She never looked for pity,

Or sympathy from you.

That's why she'll always be

The strongest girl I ever knew.
