Hospital Or Heaven

by Lynn Barany
(Victoria, B.C. Canada)

When I was a little girl
I went with Mom to visit my aunt,
My Mother was very nervous
To drive over the railroad tracks.

I was fairly quiet
Sitting in the back,
What would cause her to worry
They're just silly railroad tracks.

I asked my Mom what would happen
If a train hit our car,
She said we could die
Be crippled, or terribly scarred.

I pondered this a moment
As it didn't bother me,
To end up in a hospital
This problem I could not see.

I said if you end up in the hospital
The Doctor's will make you well,
And if you die and go to heaven
Then God will make you smile.

A child's faith is wonderful
And we should all be in awe,
Hospital or Heaven
This isn't a problem at all.
