Bedridden - Poem by richard reichwein

I am laying in a bed because of my sickness
Listening to the children playing for they have no weakness
So I want to fall asleep so I can start to dream
How I am running in a field and just jump across the small stream
It feels so good to have the grass between my toes
And be able to smell the flowers with my nose
I see the animals as they start to charge at me
And at the last second my friend lifts me into a tree
We sat and watch the animals as they would go to drink
And I said to my friend I think the buffalo just gave me a wink
The sun is starting to set as it is shining in my eye
So I turned my head and started to cry
There was my friend sitting and holding my hand
The warmth and strength made me feel so grand
So I hear the nurse as she tells him the doctor will be in
As he stands their and tells me there is a chance I will never walk again
So I sit and think of all the things I took for granted
And wonder if I will even be able to see the rest of the planet
So as you read this little poem may it in courage you someway
To go out for a walk and see all the beauty we have each and every day
