I Saw a Child
I saw a child who couldn't walk,
sit on a horse, laugh and talk.
Then ride it through a field of daisies
and yet he could not walk unaided.
I saw a child no legs below,
sit on a horse, and make it go
through wood of green and places he had
never been to sit and stare, except from a chair.
I saw a child who could only crawl,
mount a horse and sit up tall;
Then put it through degrees of paces
and laugh at the wonder in our faces.
I saw a child born into strife,
take up and hold the reins of life,
and that same child, was heard to say,
Thank God for showing me the way.....
