Autism in Bloom

It is painful

To watch you struggle, but

To see you dream

Is more rewarding

Than I could have imagined

Back when we were

Just trying to get through the day


Our challenges have changed

But our triumphs are just as sweet

You are a rare but tenacious plant

Striving to bloom, to thrive

In difficult conditions

Your needs are different

Than those of other plants

But so are your dreams
