Fallen Angels

by Sarah Squance
(Plymouth, UK)

I am very lucky

I have these two friends you see
I’d say they were more like angels
But you’d never believe me

We can’t hold a conversation
For they do not say a word
But to say they say nothing
Would be quite absurd

Their smiles tell me they’re happy
Their hugs scream that they care
Their hand in mine, though silent
Lets me know, they want me there

God sent them down from heaven
Of that I’m almost sure
To teach us things we will never know
Unless we take their tour

They take things on face value
Accept them as they are
Never judging nor condemning
They are truly shining stars

My path crossed theirs while they were young
And now I watch them grow
And while they both have Autism
It’s the `real` them I’ve come to know

I pray that on each one of you
Their wisdom they impart
And that all of you may one day meet
The fallen angels that stole my heart
