pure love, a poem about my nephew

Today it is both World Down Syndrome Day and World Poetry Day.

So it is only logical that I post a poem on my nephew, who has Down Syndrome.

When he smiles
The world lights up
And becomes, instantly,
A friendlier place

When he hugs me
And smiles so big
My heart is lifted
Into my smile

Seeing him play
Drawing his dreams
Making his puzzles
Is completely zen

He gives me so much
In the joy that he is
And the ease with which
I love him, so deeply

I am so grateful for your visit, and a comment would make my day!
