      Dear Kate Doyle What is it like to be fed?
      Disabled in a chair for the unknowing to stare
      It’s not much better in bed,

      I always eat what’s on my spoon
      When A. N. Other feeds my face,
      Why am I helpless here, I shed a tear?
      I must get out of this place,

      The doctor told my folks I did not have long
      Soon to be hearing the heavenly throng,
      As nighttime comes my Angel does too
      Then carries me off to pastures new,

      From on high I look down to where my body lays
      Around me in bright light is how I now spend my days,
      Kate just to let you know I dont have a problem to eat,
      I’m whole in my spitiual body and my life is now complete!!
