Autism And My Valentine

Many women dream of flowers, chocolates and gifts

But you have given me presents that surpass them all

One evening you rubbed my feet after a long day

I was tired and you sat down on the couch beside me

Later you took our son’s medication up to him

 You came downstairs with all the things he had collected

I saw you put everything away as I rested on the couch

Autism makes Kyle grab everything around him


Each morning you  shower our grown son

Then you brush his teeth and give him his vitamins

I watched you one day when you didn’t know I was there

Your arms were wrapped around Kyle in a big bear hug

He stepped back and looked up at you and smiled

You are the sun moon and stars to him

But to me, you are my Valentine.
