Super Caleb!

My little nephew Caleb is just 2 years old and he's been diagnosed with cancer. The little guy is in the midst of his fifth stage of chemotherapy, and it's been so hard on him. But he's a tough little fighter, and he still smiles when he gets his strength--and he returns to the same little boy he used to be.

My cousin Derek and his wife Stacy are going through a very tough time--and so is the rest of the family. Of course, everyone offers to help in whatever way they can, but there's very little that can be done, and the whole situation just makes everyone feel so helpless. They are doing a GoFundMe campaign to help raise funds to pay for Caleb's bills, and they'd appreciate your help.

This is my contribution to the cause. I dreamt this story the other night, a little children's Super Hero tale. I call it Super Caleb.


Our hero Super Caleb, awakens in a haze,
Trapped on planet Mayo-naise,
Where the bad Sea monster stays,
And makes people sad all day

Super Caleb knows that he just has to get away,
Remove the tubes and tape,
So he can reach his super cape,
And make his brave escape

He is Super Caleb,
You should see our hero fly,
He turns the Mayo people’s, sad faces into smiles,
He is Super Caleb,
And he’ll show you in a while.

The bad sea monster doesn’t know, that Caleb has some friends,
Who can give him strength again,
And he better look out when,
Super Caleb flies again.

As Super Caleb sleeps, his friend in the white coat,
Sails through the sea monster’s moat,
In a very quiet boat,
And he’s bringing Caleb hope.

He is Super Caleb!
And he makes sad people smile,
The sea monster can’t keep the people sad when Caleb flies,
He is Super Caleb!
And he’ll be here in a while.

Super Caleb opens up his eyes after a rest,
Looks down upon his chest,
Tubes are gone and he is dressed,
He knows how to do the rest.

He is Super Caleb!
And it’s time to watch him fly,
When they see him all sad people, cannot help but smile,
He is Super Caleb!
And he’s gonna win this time.
