Song for People in Wheelchairs by Michelle Martone

We would like to share this YouTube video of a song written by Michelle Martone, daughter of 2014 LCUSA National Assembly presenter Marilyn Martone. Marilyn spoke on “Persons Aren’t Burdens but Caregiving Labor can be Burdensome.”

“SONG FOR PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS”

Lyrics: Michelle Martone
Music: Pam Carlton & Michelle Martone

When you walk down the street
and you pass me by
I sit here in my wheelchair
and would love it if you just said “Hi!”

Don’t just keep on walking
Don’t just pass me by
Don’t avert your eyes when you see me
I would love it if you just said, “Hi!”

Chorus:
I am so much more than what you may see
There is so much more inside of me:
A sense of humor…Gratitude for life
Could you stop a moment and say, “Hi?”

You may think I’m less of a person
Only because you see I can’t walk
But if you took the time you would see I could talk
Could you stop a moment and say, “Hi?”

(Repeat Chorus)

You may think I’m less of a person
Only because you see I can’t walk
But if you took the time you would see I could talk
Could you stop a moment and say, “Hi?”
Could you stop a moment and say, “Hi?”
Could you stop a moment and say, “Hi?”

    Yes, this was a wonderful way to meet you, Michelle!. Thank you for sharing your music on
