Poetry Corner: Autism Sleeps for No One

Autism sleeps for no one,

It lingers into the night.

It is up with the stars

It sleeps only when it likes.


Autism has many moods,

It may jump from one mood to the next

So, as you parent your child

All you can do is your best.

Autism has many faces.

The faces cry and the faces laugh

Sometimes the faces have no expression

And it’s not always easy to read that.


Autism is a very big puzzle

And with each child it is different you see,

So, all you can do is one day at a time

As the pieces come together for thee.
