I Saw a Child

I Saw A Child

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, 
sit on a horse, and make it go 
through woods of green 
and places 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 
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.
