Can take oh my

To oh wow, just wow

From a starting point of

Two different churches

His heart is filled with joy

Always a smile on his face

He prays for everyone with love

Because he’s autistic, people pray

For him while he prays because he belongs

tee hee me



More these days

Letting loose with

Giggles and chortles

At life’s absurdities

But especially at me

A joy to see my smile mirrored back

From the face of another who’s laughing

Stand up straight

And tip the ends

With vibrant colors

Rainbow striving to be seen

Unleashing your creative side

Wearing it with enthusiasm

While nature murmurs isn’t that divine
