    I am stuck in bed
    against tear stained pillows
    unable to move
    I can hear my heart pounding
    a mile a minute.
    I ask my God why,
    he is willing me to try,
    reminding me of the beauty
    of life outside this bed
    but I lay here, stuck.

    I am stuck in bed
    but now birds are chirping
    the sun has peaked through
    dried tears are all but faded
    God has calmed my heart
    eased my mind
    we've had our morning talk.
    I am ready to see the beauty
    of the day, basking in His grace.
    Just before I leave the room
    I look back at my companion,
    the bed.
