"The Little Things"

I sit down to watch T.V.,
She sits down to read her Braille letters.

I run around and play sports,
He sits in his wheelchair wondering if there will ever be a cure.

I listen to jokes and laugh out loud with my friends,
She looks at the hand signs and replies in the same way.

I goof around with my family,
He sits by his sibling's hospital bed just wondering why it had to be so soon.

I complain that I don't like what we're having for dinner,
She sits with an aching stomach searching for her next meal in the trash can.

I kneel in peaceful prayer at church,
He fears for his life if he is caught in worship.

I forget about all of these little things I have,
But in this moment that I remember,
I am thankful.
