When I Was Sick

The Land Of Counterpane
Written by: Robert Louis Steveson

"When I was sick and lay a- bed
I had two pillows at my head
All my toys beside me lay
To keep me happy all the day"...Quoted..Robert Louis Stevenson

When I  Was Sick 
By Sara Kendrick

If I have missed reading you lines
Or failed to comment all the time
I have been blowing nose
And coughing crud and my breathing doesn't flow...  
I sound like the evening whistle
When it is about out of steam
A wheeze so loud it messes up my dreams
Maybe in a day or two
I will be able to get back to you

    To know you're sick makes me sad. - You're the best friend this poet ever had - So, should you slip into dismay - Just know there'll be a better day.... Love ya dearly....Jake

    Pills, lozenges, oral sprays / might help relieve in several ways / at little of that horrid feeling / as you;re sick in bed moaning and reeling.
