Mother of A Special Child

When I was young, I’d often say, I’d like to be a mom someday
While playing with my baby doll, I thought that jobs not hard at all
I’d have a baby, maybe two, a girl in pink…a boy in blue
Well I grew up and sure enough,
The baby that was sent to me, was born with disabilities
At first I’m frightened through and through, there’s much to learn to care for you
This wasn’t in my plans at all, when I was young and played with dolls
Your mind and body were so weak, you might not ever walk or speak
So much special care required, I’m often scared and often tired
As months and years go slowly by, I smile a lot but sometimes cry
To watch you grow and not complain, though you endure your share of pain
Oh, how I’d hold you and I’d pray, that you’d be healed and whole someday
Until one day I realized, as I gazed into your loving eyes
That I had learned so much from you, determination…courage too
A love so unconditional, it floods my soul and always will
I’m proud to say I gave you birth, for you’re an angel here on earth
