You passed us in the store day
We saw you look then glance away
We tried to smile to let you know
we didn't mind we know we're slow
We've learn to walk with heads held high
as people crowd us and loudly sigh
She may be limping but we don't care
and if you'd ask we'd gladly share
The miracles that we face gaily
witnessing the joy that she has daily
You see we never thought she'd walk
the doctors said she'd never talk
We will not leave
We're here to stay
your attitude is wasted on us today.
These words have been written in my mind time and time again over the years I finally decided to put them on paper the other night.
For my daughter Amy. She is my light, my life, my joy, my angel without her my life would not be complete and I would not be the person I am today.
