You’re Not Well

You’re not feeling well
and that is no good.
The saddest thing is
I can’t help your mood.

I wish I could just
make your illness die.
Take it all away
by blinking my eye.

I don’t have that pow’r
so I will just do
more of the things that
you like me to do.

I did the dishes,
I picked up the toys,
took out the trash and
made food for the boys.

I’ll try to help out
as much as I can,
since helping makes me
a much better man.
