If Albert Will Take Me


If Albert will take me,
I want to so you where I was born,
and the fields I used to play in as a child.

If Albert will take me,
I want to show you the house I grew up in.
With my loving family who cared for me.

If Albert will take me,
I want to show you my loving wife,
and my two beautiful children who are still with me today.

If Albert will take me,
I want to show you where I used to put my feet in the sand,
and smile and twinkle my toes in it with my family.

If Albert will take me,
I want to show you where I fought for our country,
and lost my legs defending our freedom.

If Albert will take me,
I want to show the hospital they tried to save my legs in,
and how they had to amputate them to save my life.

If Albert will take me,
I want to show you where I got my first wheelchair,
and how hard it was for me to adjust to life again.

If only Albert would take me,
If only Albert would take me.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
