Beyond Normal

A Poem by IamDale
"

People diagnosed with autism are the most creative people I know :)

"
He talks to me like I'm the best person on Earth,
Welcomes me with smiles that hug my heart and soul.
His eyes, so innocent yet so magical to look at,
Wraps me into the wonders of his imagination.

The way he listens, just makes me smile.
He had this seriously listening look, though I know he never understood.
Still, the way he appreciates my mere presence,
Just makes me cry while tumbling in the sky.

He never knew how to read and write,
He never counted from 1 to a hundred.
But he made me feel like I was a hero in a novel,
And an 11 out of a 10.

Just too wonderful for this world, he really is.
Though suffering and diagnosed with a disease.
Just a blessing in disguise, this disease of him.
'Cause the way he is made me have a friend not in need,
But a friend where I sought for help while I'm the one in need.

I never knew how hard it is for him to live inside this society,
This society of dictatorship and unending competition.
He might have been passed over just like a basketball,
But he never drowned himself in depression,
He always looked for the light; and therefore the light hugged him.

His aura just so pure and free,
It makes me feel happy and calm; showers me with nothing put positives.
I know he never seemed normal to you and to them,
But hey, you're all right; his beyond normal.
He's just extraordinary and deserving of nothing but the best of respect!

This is beautiful... u captured it all so well. Can't help but put a smile on the readers face and yet a bit of sadness because what all they do go through, the battles... surgeries, etc. I have seen a glance of this happiness in there eyes sometimes, it is or does seem much different then out happiness at times. Just a glance at there happiness puts a different view at yours. There is so much that can be said about this, but you captured this very well, and it is lovely, well done really, i like this a lot. It is a great poem that touches a readers heart. Thanks for writing this.

Dale,

Last para - "put"? or but: the second "his"? or he's

The poem... very, very well said. I mention the end distractions only because they really sell your work short.

I wish I could take something such as this and mold into something as flawless as you have. I am always enthralled to read your writes. It doesn't matter what they are about or how they are weaved. No matter what they tangle around me and draw me in.

Amazing poem!
You brought out the positive side of autistic children, a side which no one of rarely even tries to see.

Autism makes a child's life hard when born with it but they are smart human beings like any of us. We meet someone who always finds a way to change our lives and this is one of them. This poem shows praise and respect but furthermore, care for this kid.

"Just too wonderful for this world, he really is.

'Cause the way he is made me have a friend not in need,
But a friend where I sought for help while I'm the one in need."

Wonderful indeed.
