When you smile at me, you instill a courage in me to wipe my tears,
When you wipe my tears, you prepare me to smile at my fears;
When you hold my hand, I can feel your warmth and heart on my skin,
When you pat my back, I can march ahead towards my independence with a grin;
When I see you fight for me, I feel like a knight with a feisty commander,
When I see you upset about my follies, I can forecast a storm without a thunder;
When you play with me, I belive life is just this – a merry ride,
When you don’t heed attention, I sulk in oblivion though I fail to hide;
When you try to walk in my shoes, I find the hurdles diminishing and distances disappearing ,
When I see you embracing my handicaps with pride, I strive to make every moment endearing;
Your love is what I starve and seek for,
Your anger is what I understand and care for,
Your patience is what I ask for.
