Before I Go To Sleep

Before I Go To Sleep… 

Mommy, don't you cry now and Daddy don't you weep. 
I want to whisper something before I go to sleep. 

I know that when I cam here I looked perfect in every way. 
And you were so proud, Daddy; when you held me on that day. 
And Mommy, when you kissed me and wrapped me up so tight, 
I knew that I belonged here and everything was right. 
But then I stopped talking and began to slip away, 
I saw your worried faces as you knelt by me to pray. 
And Daddy, I always notice how you wipe away a tear, 
When you watch the other children as they run and laugh and cheer. 
I may not be able to tell you how much I love you so, 
Or even show you how I feel and what I really know. 
But when you hold me, Mommy, at night when all is still, 
I feel the love you have for me and I know that all is well. 
And Daddy, when you take me to the park to run and play 
I know that you still love me thought the words I cannot say. 
I want to tell you something before I go to sleep. 
I may be sort of dirrect and you may not understand, 
I know that I am not that little hild that you and Daddy planned. 
But I love you both so very much and I know you love me too, 
And if I could only speak my heart, you would feel my love for you. 
I know the future is unknown and you will always have to be, 
The ones who love and listen and take good care of me. 
I know that you are frightened and you shed so many tears, 

And if I could I'd wipe them dry and take away your fears. 
So Mommy, don't you cry now and Daddy please don't weep. 
I want to say…I love you both, before I go to sleep. 

Found this on the internet and had to share...  It is after all, Autism Awareness Month.  

I'm Dayton, I'm cool, tell your friends about me!
