My Shining Star

My Shining Star
by Angela Roberts

Justin - My Shining Star

My baby boy, I hadn't a clue.
How I would ever take care of you.
With your diagnosis, I was stunned.
I was even worried you'd be shunned.
I knew little about your disease.
Praying to God, I fell to my knees.
Please Lord please, help me do what is right.
I pleaded and cried all through the night.
Progress for you would be real slow.
                                              A normal life, you'd never know.
                                              But God has used you.  That's a fact.
                                              Even though you're handicapped.
                                              You've touched so many with love so pure.
                                              How you do it, I'm not even sure.
                                              But I see who you really are.
                                              My child, my son, my shining star.
Dedicated to all the shining stars out there.
Thanks for reading.

  1. Beautiful poem and Justin is such a handsome boy!

  2. Good morning. Beautiful poem. His life is "normal" for him - that's another way of looking at our special needs blessings!

    1. I've thought about that too. For him he knows no different so it is "normal" for him. Thanks for reading. Hope all is going well with Ira.
