( special needs )
The father watched his daughter looking out the window
Feeling so glum , when she turned and asked him :
Daddy ! Why am I so different ?
Why can’t I jump and run and have some fun ?
I know I can’t run as fast or jump as high
But I’m willing to give it a try !
Her father looked at her and thought about what he was going to say
You see when God made mankind , everyone gave him thanks and praise
To God , but as time went by people started changing and giving
Less thanks and praise
So God decided that he would make special children who could remind
The world of what they are missing.
These special children saw more dreams than most other children.
A child would dream about riding a big white horse
While the special children could see a big white horse with wings
To take them any where in the world
Other kids dreamed about being kings and queens in far away lands
While special kids saw themselves as kings and queens
Helping others to follow their dreams.
Now the world has opened up their eyes and created “ special Olympics “
He called these children “ visionaries with special needs.
Yes my daughter ! You are different in so many ways
But the world needs you so they don’t go astray.
You see things that others will not , because you have a special gift
That others have not !
GOD gave me the four things I need in this life
Faith , hope , love , and YOU !
