Easter Time

Little Johnny is dreaming
Of Easter eggs and bunnies
Of treacle cakes and cookies

His Mom likes to indulge him
After all that is all she can do
To make his day a bit happier

Ten days ago he was diagnosed
With a rare form of cancer
And little hope of survival

Little Johnny has no real clue
All that he knows is that he has to
Take daily painful tests at the hospital

His Mom puts on a brave front
Whenever she is with him she tries
To tell him that he will soon be better

Little Johnny never complains
He seems to find happiness naturally
In the birds that fly or the sweets he eats

Easter is a really special time for him
His Mom will make doubly sure of that
He will have the best egg hunt ever
She knows - for him there will never be another
