It Can Get Better
Calling his name over and over again,
Looking at me blankly…
My God is he there?
Talking and talking still no response.
Crying and praying make this all stop!
Does he know me?
Will he be a part of our world?
Kicking and screaming once again,
He can’t tell me what he needs.
Endless tears, it feels like eternity.
Is this the life for him and me?
People don’t know some don’t care,
As I watch my son feeling despair.
Days I have cried and shouted out loud,
Help my boy make him alright!
Stop his pain just let him be able to play.
Let him have friends and be ok!
But the light shown through and I saw a glimpse.
Never give up, no not a chance.
I know he hears, feels, and sees.
He is a child just like any other who is free.
Free from the burdens of a different mind,
But I wouldn’t change him; not on your life!
My little boy is coming out,
Speaking his words and playing about.
Laughter fills his mouth and a smile is there.
My little boy trying new things.
We are moving on, we won’t be the same.
He has shown me what true love really is.
It breaks my heart and fills me with joy.
I jump up and down because he tried new food!
I get a huge smile when he speaks to me,
some of these things I thought would never be.
Tears fill my eyes because I am so happy.
Daniel is who he is supposed to be.
Everyday is better,
Every moment I cherish.
What a God send he has been for me.
