Valentine's Poem for Moms of Non-verbal Persons

Cyndi Burns is the mom of Alex Burns, an ACT Today! grant recipient. Alex has a dual diagnosis of Down Syndrome and autism, She sent us this poem for Moms of non-verbal persons on Valentine's Day. It is a testament to the unconditional love of a mother for a child with a disablity. Cyndi, I think you are heroic for being such an amazing mother to Alex.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful poem!
In Gratitude, Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson

My Heart breaks a little each day,
For the words you try but cannot say.
With PECS there is hope
of communication to be,
... Because your thoughts really
do matter to me.
My Heart breaks a little
each day,
For the words I long to
hear you say.
"I love you mom for showing
me a choice,
"I love you mom for giving
me a voice".
I know mom your heart breaks
each day,
For the words you long
to hear me say.
"I love you mom is what I
would say,
And thank you on this Valentines Day
