“CLOSE YOUR EYES” Written by: Nicole Russell-Jackson
Close your eyes my son, everything will be alright; …
I will hold and comfort you all through the night.
Your day was so long filled with anxiety and fear;
But I will ease your little mind by holding your near.
The world just doesn’t understand what you go through each day;
How frustrated you get with the words you can not say.
Or how change makes you upset and some sounds hurt your ears;
Or how desperately you want to connect with your peers.
All that they see is the tantrums, how you kick and you shout;
They don’t see the sparkle in your eyes when you figure things out.
But God and I know your heart my son so you can rest your weary head;
And know that I pray for you as you lay in your bed.
Close your eyes tight and remember every word that I say;
“Mommy loves you unconditionally, more and more everyday”.
You are my strength and you inspire me more than you know;
I feel so Blessed to be able to watch you learn and to grow.
So close your eyes my son, don’t you worry or weep;
Because I will always watch over you, even while you’re asleep!
Dedicated to my son : LaDaveon Quinterrius Jackson, 3 years old ASD
