Though it seems I look away
Don’t laugh at words that others say,
Turn from those who seem to stare
Believe me I still know you’re there.
A loving glance means naught to me
It is your presence that I see,
A soft and caring voice to hear
Calms and takes away my fear.
What I feel is hard to show
Maybe some will never know,
The special person that you see
The loving child I know as me.
Let me take your hand in mine
I’ll lead you if you take the time,
To love that dwells firm and deep
A gift from me for you to keep.
So share with me this time today
Do not leave until I say,
Stay ’til you know who I am
A loving gentle little man.
