NOT ONLY THE SICK

NOT ONLY THE SICK The sick aren't limited to only Those ones lying on the bed Feeling uncomfortable, weak Receiving treatment, instructions Not only the sick Everyone is a casualty Carers, sympathizers, doctors Friends far and distant ones are The sick are well treated like newly born Sleep inside, on the bed, well covered But caregivers sleep outside like goats Exposed to cold, mosquito bites and fears Not only the sick feel the pains Loved ones run helter-skelter Relations always in panic, fear Resume deeply in prayer, fasting Stay at home too not at rest Not sure of the sick's condition Though waiting to see him again To receive him healthier than ever Physicians as well, not exempted Hope to discharge the patient alive Research and consult, go extra miles Prefer smiling farewell to parting tears.
