A Childs Thank you (A note from a child with Autism)
FROM A CHILD WITH AUTISM
Thank-you for seeing me,
For seeing that I am in here;
I am curious about everything;
Thank-you for knowing that.
Thank-you for understanding,
That I see everything,
That I notice the beauty that most people miss.
I will show you one petal that is beautiful;
See how the veins make a pattern;
Notice the variations in color.
You show me that the petal is part of a flower;
That flower is part of a garden.
I will show you the flow of the lines on a page,
Up and down, around and over.
You show me that the lines make letters;
The letters have sounds;
The sounds make words that I can use to connect with
Thank-you for reaching me,
Because you do,
Even if it doesn’t always show.
FOR HELPING ME
FIND MY VOICE.
