On the day you were born I looked to the sky,
with a joyful tear in my eye.
I thanked the Lord for entrusting me with your life.
I said “welcome to the world, this is your new life!”
I promised to protect you through the challenges you’d face,
But I had no idea just what was in place.
Your body would shake from the seizures in your brain,
I would call out to God to help ease your pain.
I wanted so badly to get rid of the seizures,
So you could have life someday as a “typical” teenager.
Although it was rough for many years,
I always had hope and very few fears.
We almost lost you more than one time,
But you held on to life and showed us you’re fine.
You have taught us so much that I never expected
And showed there’s a lot to learn from the unexpected.
Your beauty shines through both inside and out,
Your love is unconditional and that’s what it is all about.
I wake each morning and still thank the Lord
For my beautiful girl who doesn’t speak a word.
May you continue to shine as bright as the sun,
And I promise to help you have as much fun
As a “typical child” would each day of their life
That is my promise to you each day of your life!
I thank you for all that you have given to me
And want the whole world to know and to see
A beautiful girl who does not walk, talk or move
Is a blessing to all with all that you do!
Today is a day to we celebrate you
And all the gifts you have given with the things that you do!
Happy 6th Birthday my Emily Grace
May this poem bring a smile to your face!
