Please God, No Asthma for my Granddaughter!

I have a case of asthma

Which makes me gasp and wheeze;

I grow a little worse each day

From pollen in the breeze.

And so my granddaughter , three years old,

Is busy looking for

The cat she thinks I hid somewhere

Before she came in the door.

She thinks her grandma’s back can growl

And would have “called the doctor”

If I had not been near the phone

And so that I could stop her.

I know she doesn’t understand

And hope she won’t find out

Why Grandma makes a racket

When she breathes in and out.

I hope she never feels this way—

For victims it’s not funny—

And I sure hope asthma never hits

My precious little Honey.
