I got this from my friend Jaz's blog

Jaz has a son too, Zach --- who is also a special boy like Jorel,..

this was sent to her by a friend,.. just copying it here,... to share with you guys,... warmed my heart.. swelled my eyes with tears...

from Jaz's blog..
This poem was forwarded to me by one of my very good friends who has 3 young boys with autism. I broke down after reading this. Zach may not speak but his big brown eyes say it all and I am 100% certain that if he could speak, this is what he’d say…

BEFORE I GO TO SLEEPWritten by Sally Meyer 2000
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 came 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 tearwhen 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 playI know that you still love me, though the words I cannot say.I want to tell you something before I go to sleep.I may be sort of direct and you may not understand,I know that I am not that little child 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 bethe 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 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.
