a special mother for a special child

often swelled with pride did i

patting myself for being a mother perfect

crediting myself for all their highs


sighted I a mother with a special child

anticipating his wishes fulfilling them

strengthening him to catch up with the rest

providing a firewall around him

shielding him from the onslaughts of the world

sharing a special bond with her child

more close to her loved one

than I to mine
