Looking at the ceiling from a bed of pain
In self pity there is nothing to gain

Looking beyond the ceiling to the Father above
Secure in the knowledge of his healing love

Looking at the ceiling in simple belief
Brings with it a great peaceful relief

Looking at the ceiling seeing a fly speck
Antiseptic room gives it a funny aspect

Looking beyond this somber bed of pain
Seeing a pretty nurse makes it not in vain

Looking to the Father for His healing hand
Keeping a sense of humor in this painful land


Dedicated to my brother, David
View of the Ceiling (c)2002 Quentin Clingerman
