 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, I heard him say,
Thank God for showing me the way.
