Grateful for the pain

dear one

thank you for this morning’s pain
I shall not make a grumble
I may never feel this good again
so now i will be humble

the only things that hampered me
were an aching back and head
so i feel as though you pampered me
and let me out of bed

gone the crushing malady
that formulates its lies
convincing with finality
that never lets us rise

gone the ringing in my ears
the itching and the twitch
the cornucopia of fears
and my side’s annoying stitch

i feel as though the sixteen tons
have suddenly been lifted
and I’m among the lucky ones
whose miracle’s been gifted.
