A Unique Gift that says: "Thank You"
If you need to say a special "thank you", A Gift of Poetry is an excellent way of expressing your
innermost thoughts and feelings.
(Here's a good example of what can be achieved. Linda wanted something special for son's speech therapist, Maura. Linda has kindly given her permission for her poem and story to be published)
What is your name : Linda
What are the key messages you would like to send: Maura came into our lives and started when Jordan was 2 and worked with him for a year. It was a tough road in the beginning because he was scared and confused. Maura was very patient, kind, and gentle to him. She taught him to speak by playing with games and toys it was so amazing to watch her techniques. She had taken this sad little boy, who was frustrated because nobody understood him to this happy little talking 3 year old.
As you would know only too well,
the right words can be hard to find,
but we've got so much gratitude in our hearts,
we just had to share what's on our mind.
You see, we think you're truly magnificent,
it's simply miracles that you perform every day,
and we know exactly the difference that you've made,
and that one line leaves so much to say.
You see, Jordan had a difficult start in life,
for his first two years he was in and out all the time,
one of those times he actually stopped breathing,
but thankfully, he found the words to complete this rhyme.
Maura, you came into our life when Jordan was two,
and you worked with him for about a year,
it was a tough road in the beginning, he was scared,
but towards his future, you started to gently steer.
You were so very patient, kind and gentle,
and you coaxed him carefully, week by week,
you'd play with him and with his games and toys,
and quite miraculously, he slowly started to speak.
You had taken a sad little boy,
who was frustrated because no one did as he told,
and quite magically, you transformed him,
into this happy, talking three year old.
And I remember this moment so very well,
in truth, I'll remember it for the rest of my days,
it was when Jordan asked us for a drink from the fridge,
and our lives had changed in so many ways.
I started to cry when I heard his little voice,
and at that moment, we felt he was going to be alright,
for so long, we thought he'd struggle to communicate,
and there he was, asking us for a Sprite.
It takes a special type of person to do what you do,
I'm just so thankful that you landed on Planet Earth,
because you have given me and Jordan the words,
to tell you just what your life is really worth.
And we just wanted to say thank you,
I guess that's really what these words are for,
here's to you, Maura, you're truly wonderful,
and here's to you performing your miracles, for evermore.
