Heavens Very Special Child

A special poem for special parents
By: Edna Massionilla “Written to honor her down syndrome son”

A MEETING WAS HELD QUITE FAR FROM EARTH……
IT WAS TIME AGAIN FOR ANOTHER BIRTH……
SAID THE ANGELS TO THE LORD ABOVE……
THIS SPECIAL CHILD WILL NEED MUCH LOVE……
HIS PROGRESS MAY BE VERY SLOW……
ACCOMPLISHMENT HE MAY NOT SHOW……
AND HE WILL REQUIRE EXTRA CARE……
FROM THE PARENTS HE MEETS DOWN THERE……
HE MAY NOT ALWAYS RUN OR LAUGH OR PLAY……
HIS THOUGHTS MAY SEEM QUITE FAR AWAY……
SO MANY TIMES HE WILL BE LABELED……
MAYBE DIFFERENT OR MAYBE DISABLED……
SO LETS BE CAREFUL WHERE HE IS SENT……
WE WANT HIS LIFE TO BE CONTENT……
PLEASE LORD FIND THE PARENTS WHO……
WHO WILL DO THIS SPECIAL JOB FOR YOU……
THEY WILL NOT REALIZE RIGHT AWAY……
THIS LEADING ROLE THEY ARE ASKED TO PLAY……
BUT WITH THIS CHILD SENT FROM ABOVE
COMES STRONGER FAITH AND RICHER LOVE……
AND SOON THEY WILL KNOW THE PRIVILEGE GIVEN……
IN CARING FOR THIS GIFT FROM HEAVEN……
THIS PRECIOUS CHILD SO MEEK AND MILD……
IS HEAVEN’S VERY SPECIAL CHILD……
