The Crash

The Crash

Isn't it funny how change occurs?

One minute we're all well

The next everything is black

Life is so fragile like a snail shell

-

You said you'd be right back

Just popping to the shop

But then you had that car crash

Now you can't walk, only hop

-

Your limp, lifeless body

In that hospital bed

With your sister and best friend beside you

Many tears have been shed

-

We hope you get well soon, mate

We hope you're going to be ok

Operation after operation

Just to keep your life this way

-

No way for you to walk again

But maybe you'll get a fake leg

But you always wanted to be an athlete

Now the washing you can't even peg

-

The nerves in your bad leg

Are unable to be used

Your breathing is deteriorating

You whole body is bruised

-

You're fighting well

Please don't give up the fight

Who else is your sister to turn to

In the darkness of night

-

Your life has never been easy

Your parents are no longer alive

It's just you and your sister now

Heaven is not ready for you to arrive

-

Your life has many years to go

You must not give up yet

Just be brave, just a few more operations

And for the rest of your life you'll be set

Get Well Soon Phil
