Visit the Sick

James J. Mecalfe

There is no person lonelier 
Than he who lies in bed 
And must depend on others 
To be comfortable and fed

Who never has a visitor 
To talk to him and smile 
And make the life he has to live 
A little more worth while

He does not ask for magazines 
For candy, fruit and such 
But just a friendly visit and 
The words that mean so much

He wants to see the sun come out 
In place of all the rain 
And know that someone cares about 
His troubles and his pain

And surely somewhere out of all 
The moments made for play 
There must be time to call on him 
And say hello today.
