Let It Be Me

It should have been me
It should have been me
I can take the pain
And stand the misery

Helpless to watch
As a little child bleeds
Nothing I can do
To care for their needs

I wish it was me
I stand and volunteer
Buckle me under, bend me over
Let it be me, you hear?

He’s tiny
She’s precious
And their Momma’s getting restless
I’m here
I’m helpless
The only one who survived the sickness

It should have been me
It should have been me




Written while sitting in McLane Children’s Medical Center with my daughter, who had pneumonia. At the same time, my son had strep throat and my wife had a sinus infection and pinkeye. I was the only one not sick.
