THE STRONGEST GIRL I EVER KNEW.

She never got to dance,
Or go to her own Prom.
She never got the chance,
To forget where she came from.
She never got to kiss,
A man she idolized.
She never felt love’s bliss,
‘Cause she was paralyzed.
She never got to talk,
About love with a smile.
She never got to walk,
Down a Church’s Aisle.
She never got to say,
Those precious words “I Do”.
But she was far and away,
The strongest girl I ever knew.
She couldn’t brush her hair,
Or put make up on her face.
She couldn’t hold you dear,
Or give you a warm embrace.
She couldn’t clasp her hands,
As if in the form of prayer.
She couldn’t understand,
Why she was in a wheelchair.
She never showed her fears,
Or let you hear her cries.
She never showed the tears,
That fell down from her eyes.
She never looked for pity,
Or sympathy from you.
That’s why she’ll always be,
The strongest girl I ever knew.

This is special dedication to my Autistic friend I know. And to all sick people who need love and to loved. -Reuben Griffiths Bekoe.
