Because I made you,
I thought I’d know just what to do,
That I would understand you,
That love would get us through.
Because you grew in me,
I thought I would know everything,
I didn’t know what life would bring,
But I didn’t know anything.
Because I didn’t understand,
Life wasn’t going as I planned,
Crumbling under the demands,
I looked for someone to hold my hand.
Because I didn’t expect Autism,
I didn’t understand the condition,
I needed to find someone to listen,
Needed help to make decisions.
Because I didn’t know where to go,
I looked for people who might know,
I met friends who’ve helped us grow,
I owe it all to you, my little rainbow.
