A Mother's Prayer

(Sally Meyer wrote this poem for her son Dhylan in 1999. Dhylan is now 7 and has high functioning autism. When Sally wrote this poem "he was severely affected, could not speak and life was very hard." She wrote this one night after a particularly trying day, because according to Sally, "I realized that I needed to take a step back and enjoy the little things."

Our times with our children are indeed precious. We get so involved in our daily routines that we tend to forget what great gifts our children REALLY ARE. We never know if God is going to give us one more day. Thank you Sally for sharing this wonderful inspirational poem with us.

Just For This Day

by

Sally Meyer


Just for this morning 
I am going to smile when I see your face, and laugh when I 
feel like crying.

Just for this morning 
I will let you wake up softly in your flannel p.j.'s and 
hold you until you are ready to stir.

Just for this morning, 
I will let you choose what you want to wear, and I will say 
how beautiful you are.

Just for this morning 
I will step over the laundry to pick you up, and take you 
to the park to play.

Just for this morning 
I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me 
how to put your puzzle together.

Just for this afternoon 
I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and 
sit with you in the garden 
blowing bubbles.

Just for this afternoon 
I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you 
scream and whine for the ice cream truck 
and I will buy you one, if he comes by.

Just for this afternoon 
I wont worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, 
I will simply love you, for the joy you bring me.

Just for this afternoon, 
I will let you help me make cookies, 
and I wont stand over you. . . trying to 'fix things.

Just for this afternoon, 
I will take you to McDonalds and buy us both a 'Happy Meal' 
So you can have two toys.

Just for this evening, 
I will hold you in my arms and tell you the story of how you 
were born, and how much we love you.

Just for this evening, 
I will let you splash in the bathtub, 
and I wont get angry when you pour water over your sisters head.

Just for this evening 
I will let you stay up late, while we sit on the porch swing 
and count all the stars.

Just for this evening 
I will bring you glasses of water, 
and snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite t.v. show.

Just for this evening 
when I kneel down to pray, I will simply be grateful for all that I have, 
and not ask for anything, 
Except 
Just one more day.

c. 1999 Sally Meyer.
