My oldest daughter decided to write a poem for her brother who has Down Syndrome. It’s a poem that clearly describes her feelings for her brother and that having a disability doesn’t matter – love is strong and kids love each other.
I’m so proud and had to share my daughter’s poem, which my lovely wife added to a fantastic Down Syndrome 2013 awareness video.
It is lovely to have a brother with Down syndrome
because he feels love much stronger than I do
Whenever I help him he hugs me harder
When I dress up he looks up hugs, kisses and dances with me
He makes me feel like a princess
Once when he won a game and I lost he hugged me and started crying
Now when we play we laugh and he lets me win
Sometimes he can be a little rough when we wrestle and then I don’t really like him that much
But through all I love him with all my heart
He is so sweet
Sometimes he’s a little hyper
But nothing makes him different
Because I love him and that’s all that matters
He’s my brother!
