Let's Do This Thing....

Let's Do This Thing...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I smile when I cry for you
Smile to let you know it's alright
You don't have to feel bad

Don't have to feel bad that you hurt me
We have to do what we have to do
I want to live... I don't have time to waste

Give me that injection, no... don't you cry
Because it hurts me, I have to bear it
Bear it because... I have no choice

Tears roll down your cheeks touching my heart
Because you care that you hurt me
Tears roll down my cheeks because I care that you... hurt

So, I smile so, you can see I'm going to be alright
No matter the pain... it's not your fault
Doing a blood gas is going to hurt no matter what

Don't you cry now... what did you say?
You cry because ... I'm so brave?
Oh no... I'm not so brave... I just know I have to do this

Do this if I want to live... I can't waste any time
So, come on ... let's do this thing
We'll cry, hurt together... let's do this thing

I was thinking back to the time the lady who was giving me a blood gas when I was getting ready for surgery... my heart hurt for her.  This was a few years ago... I am fine, now.  :))))) Gloria

  1. I too think you were brave! You didn't just go through all you went through once but you were brave enough to go through it twice! I am glad you made it both times. What would I do without my best friend? Love, Ms. Nancy
