I look at you and think
"Why are you smiling?"
You change moods before I can blink
Those blocks just keep on piling
I know this isn't easy for you
You don't know what to do
It's not easy on us either
Giving up, or ignoring you--we want neither
I think you smile so you let us know
"Hey I'm okay"
That's not the way you want to go
All we can do is hope and pray
You don't like being touched
You can't talk
You've amounted to more than much
You failed every milestone--even how to walk
I don't want to see you in a hospital, ever
I will even go to therapy with you
"Okay, try to pull that lever"
I'll go through it all with you
I love you more than you can understand
When you graduate
Mom'll be so happy "there's my little man"
Your life we'll be able to punctuate
I'm here with you, bro
I'll be there whereever you go
And just remember we love you
I hope you understand that too

- Artist: Unconscious Breath
- Description: My brother has severe autism and he will never be able to speak. I have helped him through his though times and even taught him how to walk and sign! A couple of weeks ago, he signed to me "I love you." I love him, too. I hope you enjoy this poem and can relate to it. Leave a comment and rate?
