(This verse can be used for a co-worker,
by replacing "home" with "work")
When you're in the hospital
Everyone at home is
supposed to be
Without going into
Since the shock
good for you
Don't count on
(turn beet red)
in your absence
You didn't hear it from me, but
better get back home
Okay, so you landed in the hospital
We're sure we are not the only ones who regret this
I'll bet you're really enjoying
eating blah food
waiting for the shared bathroom
being caught between two different TV broadcasts
simultaneously, no less
from each of your roommates
getting poked and prodded and questioned
hearing about your dog whining all night at home
Need one more reason to get well faster?
We all want you to! So hurry up!
Oh no, you're in the hospital?
If I show up on the sneak one night
when it's dark as pitch
and scale the wall outside your window
do you think I can spring you loose?
Hospitals never get that dark?
Wait, I know, I'll come as
the book-cart lady and
you can ride on the bottom shelf
and we'll scoot out the door!
You don't bend that well anymore?
How about playing floral delivery --
you collect all the flowers in the ward
and I'll help you deliver them
right out the front entrance!
You're allergic to pollen?
Too many excuses!
I give up!
You'll just have to get well enough
to be allowed to leave!
We're so sorry you are ill
We really miss your bright smile and laugh
Hope you make a fast and full recovery
Hope your operation goes well and
Those wise doctors get everything
back in place where it belongs
So you can get up the energy
To bounce right back out again
And dance a little jig
- tee-dee (whirl) -
- tee-dah (spin) -
- too-rah (finger flutter) -
all the way home!!!
Heard you were
a little energy depleted
lying low at home
even offline for a time :(
Hope you will soon be
back in control
a 24/7 dynamo
tweeting and texting and surfing :)
Let me know when you are
and we'll go have a blast, okay?
We would love to see you back again
Just like you were, only well
We hope you have a really wonderful rest
And we'll be looking forward to your return
In the meantime, don't worry
We've got everything covered
So just relax, and leave the work to us
Best wishes for a full recovery
