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,

Ait on a horse and make it go

Through woods where 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……
