I May Have You Yet You Will Never Have Me

My fight against Multiple Sclerosis
*************************************************

Eyes that have cried a million tears
once hidden behind a mask of pretend
fearing to reveal the truth behind me
emotions many wouldn't comprehend

These shackles I carry each day
trying to destroy my mind,body and soul
this merciless beast of dominance
waiting to take my power of control

Slowly with each and every passing day
stealing pieces of the person I use to be
mixing me up into a jig saw puzzle
scattered pieces of the real me

Waiting in the shadows of my body
unseen to the naked eye
yet I always know you are there
the reason behind the tears I cry

Leaving me one-eye sighted once again
in darkness, once again made me truly see
how precious life on earth really is
bringing out the fight, again, in me

Time and time again you strike
my smiles and laughter ease the pain
for laughter is the strongest medicine
and I refuse to lose to you again

Maybe it is time you give up and move on
because this is one thing I can guarantee
I may forever have this disease
but this disease will NEVER have me..................
