DEDICATED TO PEOPLE LIVING WITH AUTISM
I hear your heartily giggle and I run to you
But I realise that you are all on your own
As you don’t even seem to notice me
I crave for your attention like I am the baby.
I have thought of walking away from you
Like an animal abandons a weak child; such level of cruelty, no I can’t!
For this strong connection tells me that we’re meant to be.
You are a gift to be doted upon, and not abandoned.
Even when it is not easy learning some subjects, you are highly talented
At your own time you take the information in
Showing special abilities in the dreaded subject of math
And impressive dexterity while fondling the instruments of music
Your social and learning challenges are not known to everyone
If we all knew, we would have supported you the way we should
So I tell others to let them know
That you are beloved, my special child, moreso with autism.
