Weary, tired and wandering
wiping away the sleep
reaching out to touch your skin
and holding you near to me.
My boy you are the sunshine
in my sometimes darkened world
your eyes are blue and deep and still
housed here within my soul.
I’ll be forever grateful
for everything you gave me
for bringing love into my life
in many ways you saved me.
A mum is who I’m meant to be
a mum is who I am
you have my heart my little boy
you’re part of a bigger plan.
A plan to change the world today
and make them see more clearly
the life and love you have within you
the things I hold so dearly.
The way in which you see the world
for all its joy and colour
the music that you love so much
that we share with one another.
I’ve said it once i’ll say it more
for giving me this label
for choosing me to be your mum
i’ll be forever grateful.Tags: autism, children, family, My Son, parenting
