Today was just like any other day,
Except for the little girl in the crib.
I knew she was different, I just knew.
She couldnít speak or walk, just smiled.
Her big eyes sparkled when she smiled.
When she spoke, only angels understood.
Her blonde wavy hair illuminated the room.
Grandma said that she was a lost angel.
She was one of Godís lost angels on loan
To bring us all hope, joy and love.
A lost angel who taught us all a lesson,
That every child of God is important.
Some of us saw the flaws, while others
Only realized the impurities in ourselves.
One day, she walked through the clouds,
To the home the angels had prepared for her.
She is not a lost angel anymore.

Our Angels
I appreciated this poem so much...I have 2 Autistic grandsons...They sure do teach you love and patience...
My niece was born with brain damage over 3 decades ago...the drs. also found out years later she had Prader Willi Syndrome
The people who have this can eat themselves to death...everything has to be locked up...the part of their brain that tells them they are full doesn't work...so they are always hungry...They are prone to potty mouths as Terrets (sp)...She can surely test you when you are out with her in public...Most Prader Willis don't live passed their 20s...but she is pushing 40...She can be so loving and is always happy to see me....She's precious...Kacee

LOST ANGEL
Thank you all for reviewing and leaving such nice comments. If we would look around us at God's "special" little people, we would see the great joy they bring to all of us, instead of them being different. If the shoe were on the other foot, would they be judging us the same? Their is a reason they are born, a reason they stay with us and a reason why they are taken from us. I feel the same about the elderly. It's within our hearts to figure it out. Thanks again. PaulaAnne

Surreal Beauty
I enjoyed this a lot. I got a beautiful image of a beautiful person that was much loved. But the voice and narrative and the little details mean that it avoids the sentimetality that poems that deal with these issues often stumble into.
