Becky, a wonderful mommy from my T-21 site that I am on all the time, wrote this beautiful poem. I wanted to share it with you all! Isn't it great?

Can You Tell?
by Becky Bowen

Many times I wonder
As I go throughout the day,
Can you tell I’m special,
When you look my way?

Can you tell I’m different,
When you look into my eyes,
And see the tiny Brushfield spots,
That sparkle when I smile?

When you see my chubby little hands,
The line so deep and long,
Can you tell I am unique,
When I sign to you in song?

Can you tell by looking at my face,
So sweet and full of joy,
I’m as precious as they come,
Mommy’s Little Boy?

And Daddy’s Little Girl
As she twirls all around,
Can you tell when she dances,
In her ballerina gown?

Can you tell by my expressions,
By the way my body moves,
By the little things that differ,
From the children known to you?

Can you tell I am a blessing,
Sent from up above,
To live here on this earth with you,
And fill your world with love?

Can you tell that I have feelings,
The same as all of you,
Sometimes I laugh, sometime I cry,
My heart is human, too.

Can you tell I‘m worthy,
Do you see me less than whole?
I hope you can appreciate,
My selfless perfect soul.

My love is unconditional,
Loyal ‘til the end.
Can you tell I’m capable,
Of being your best friend?

Can you tell that just like other kids,
I love to run and play.
But, at times I need to do these things,
In my special way.

Don’t judge from my appearance,
There are differences, it’s true.
So, when you think about it,
Can you tell I’m just like you?
