The Poem That Came After A Get Well Card

THE POEM THAT CAME AFTER A GET WELL CARD

 

Have you ever heard it said?

“The sun will not shine as long as you’re in bed.”

The sun will not come out today

For little children to laugh and play

It’s up to someone bigger than you

To do what must be done; that He can do

I’ll say my prayers whether early or late

For this pleasantness I will not wait or hesitate

I hope everyone’s prayers reach out to you

So you’ll get well as you must do

When this has been done the sun will shine

And help everyone be happy most of the time

This is for you, especially you

To keep you from ever getting blue

I know God will bless you

And always be with you
