Someday

Font Size

Maybe someday you will grow up to be president.

But that is not a favorable job –

Maybe you will use your wisdom and patience as a teacher instead.

I wonder if you will want to see the world, and be a traveler?

Or a beautiful actress, performing on a stage – Oh, I can picture you now!

Maybe you will be a radio announcer,

And I will listen to your voice filled with wit, humor and knowledge from far away.

Oh!  Maybe you will be a professional athlete!

And as you wave to the crowd I will be screaming “I love you!” from the stands.

Maybe you will prefer to coach your son’s football team –

As he will see you as the most important person in his life.

You are so brave.  Maybe you will use your strength to fight fires as a fire fighter.

Maybe you will use your voice to write, and I will hear you speak to me in written words.

I am so excited for you.

For all of you.

Every today, I will encourage you to dream!

For I know that every tomorrow is a blank slate,

Waiting to be written on.

Autism or not, anything is possible!

And I will always be there, as every yesterday, today and tomorrow you are my everything.

I will be there helping you to reach for the stars.

Then, I know,  I will watch you swing on one.

So dream.  DREAM BIG!  For the future is yours!
