This was something I wrote for a colleague who had to go on short term disability. Sometimes, they need a little more than the typical “get well soon” or “we’re thinking of you” that we usually get from each other. It’s amazing what a little sincere thoughtfulness does to gladden a heart!

when you’re knocked to your knees
And you’re down on your luck
And your body just hurts
And Life just sucks…

Just remember this thing
We’re rootin’ fer you!
We’re cheerin’ you on!
We’re “one less” without you.

You’ll get thru this struggle
And come out with a smile.
Just don’t forget to Look Up
While you’re down there a while.

Get your rest, gain your strength,
Get yourself whole…and then
Once it’s all through
We’ll see you again!
