For my D – A Poem

By | March 11, 2012

Linking in today with @VicWelton for

Lauren (@AutismMums_Dads) asked today if anyone had any poems to share, this is one I wrote:

“From the moment you were placed upon my tum,
No doubt about it, I was your mum.

My love for you will never falter,
You are my D, my buddy, my daughter.

Certain situations can make you cause a “scene”,
That’s the “thing” about autism, it cannot be seen.

Don’t pre-judge the situation, look at the carer,
Am I shouting right back – or trying to calm her?

Instead of staring, look at my D and smile,
I’m here raising autism awareness…I might be a while.”

Hope you like it. Comments and RTs welcome, as ever  Jx

Love this ! I have a sister who is mentally & physically handicapped. We went out with my Dad, my 2 girls, my hubby, my sister and her carer the other day for lunch. She shouted and did what she usually does to communicate. You learn to ignore the stares, the misunderstanding faces. Raising awareness of all special needs is so important xx

Thanks J, wrote it a while ago and felt like sharing it today.

My original one was a bit too dark, might include it next week or not at all, not sure :-/
