Oh, what delightful pleasure
I cherish as everyday treasure
my special child’s love beyond senses can assure
apprehending from the heart his simple sheer leisure…
When he blissfully pinches my cheeks with bliss
as I caress his hair, exuding shampoo scent he can’t miss
when he strives to give me smooching kiss
mumbling gaily with: “like this, love this!”
Always predictable through his expressive eyes
though struggling along sign language he seems to devise
he affirms his comprehension with thumbs-up so wise
responding cleverly as from his wheel-chair he strives to rise .
In eating delicacies, we enjoy our partnership
feasting on honey products, our tongues are in fellowship
while along cheese and milk we savour warm friendship
thanking the gracious Lord* for tasty blessings of sweet relationship.
*1Peter 2:3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
