the flu

yesterday morning i cought the flu
i feel so bad i don't know what to do
the coughing the acheing, who can i sue
this flu is so bad i might pass it to you
it's been a long time sence i felt this sad
even longer sence i felt this bad
and when i'm well and thank God for my health
i remember these moments when the hurting i felt
life is so fragile you can forget to breath
but telling our problems is a delicate need
i ask for your prayers and maybe a quick cure
the bible says ask and it will be given to you
so to all my soup friends that are in my corner
please say a prayer so my health will find order
and if i feel fine by morning i'll see
that some of the soupers really pray for me

    I'll pray for a fast recovery... You can write with the flu? You're a stronger person than I am... You're probably already on the mend...

    John I only tell you this cause it's true, I was one of those that prayed for you. This poem is good with an excellent twist, for I feel you are a gifted poet and are truly blessed.

    is it regular flu, I'm-dying-in-the-next-five-minutes flu, bird, swine or man-flu? and does it mean I have to do my florence nightingale routine? well florence has something to brighten your day and make you feel better...
