9-3-15 Woman in Addiction and Recovery

Opening Words
The Strongest Girl I Ever Knew
In Loving Memory of Kelly Doe
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,
A man she idolized.
She never felt love's bliss,
'Cause she was paralyzed.
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,
Those 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 you 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.

Closing Words
Take courage friends.
The way is often hard, the path is
never clear,
and the stakes are very high.
Take courage.
For deep down, there is another
truth:
you are not alone.
