If I Could Take It Away...

If I could take it away…

If I could take it away, maybe your life would be easier.

If I could take it away, maybe you wouldn’t have to struggle so much.

If I could take it away, maybe you could be able to talk.

If I could take it away, maybe you could say, “I love you, mama.”

If I could take it away, maybe you wouldn’t be so frustrated.

If I could take it away, maybe you would make friends easier.

If I could take it away, maybe you would sleep more than a couple of hours a night.

If I could take it away, maybe you wouldn’t have your sensory issues.

If I could take it away, maybe you wouldn’t get so overwhelmed by your surroundings.

If I could take it away, maybe you wouldn’t have food issues.

If I could take it away, you wouldn’t be you.

If I could take it away, I wouldn’t.

If I could take it away, I really wouldn’t because I love you for who you are. Autism is a part of you, a part of your personality, a part of your character, and I’d never change you.

Baby boy, you are perfect.
