Side by Side

August 3, 2021

Side by SideMommy tells me you have autism
I don’t understand the name
Mommy says you see things differently
But to me, you look the same…

Some days you say you need space
You tell me to leave you alone
Some days you’ll want to play with me
Those days are so much fun!

I watch you from across the room
I see you spinning around
You cover your ears; you begin to cry
Sometimes you fall to the ground

I don’t always know what’s going on
But I know how much I love you
We’ll be side by side forever
Friends together through and through
