Daughter With Autism

For my daughter


It's hard it's hard it's hard she said

while thrashing around on her bed

and banging herself on the head

she doesn't like loud noise

she doesn't like bright light

she doesn't like high heat

she's beautiful she's smart she's sweet

while she sleeps

i wish that i could make it right

i want to take away the fight

i'll think on her late tonight

on her i will think late this morning

and wish that without warning

i could give her all her speech

and put these things within her reach

to just be a part of the crowd

and not worry about being loud

and go and buy the latest clothes

because these things that no one knows

i don't know what it's like to not be able to shop for my clothes

and sometimes she looks at me

And smiles and is so sweet

And then we spin and she will grin

And then we'll do it all again

it's hard it's hard it's hard she said

while thrashing around on her bed

and hitting herself on the head

and water flows out of my head

and so many can't see what I see

And so many can't see what you see

And they can't understand what we feel

And they just cannot see

and the love profusion

it makes me feel it makes her shine

and the love profusion

it makes it real it makes me know

there are no real answers
