Author: Marilyn A F Longfellow


A meeting was held way up in Heaven.
It's time on earth for a graduation.
Said the Angels to the Lord above,
This special girl always needed much love.
Her progress may have seemed very slow,
Accomplishments she may never show.
And she's required extra care,
From all the folks she's meet down their.
She may not run or sing or play,
Or go off to college far away.
In many ways she can't adapt.
And she is known as handicapped.
So bless all those who've helped her through,
With hugs and kisses and Bright Balloon's.
With this girl sent from above,
Came stronger faith and richer love.
And soon they'll know the privilege given,
In caring for this special gift from Heaven,
She thanks all those for their care and patience,
It's time on Earth for her graduation!

------- Author's Notes -------

A thank you poem to all those who loved and cared for my handicapped daughter,Leslie Dalton, until her graduation from High School.
