(for Cameron on World Down Syndrome Day)

 

we dream, stand up

we sense the world around us

we love what we know

we fear when we are the unknown

 

knowingly, love us

we love you

we love the world we have

in the family of care

 

trust us, we learn

we give and take, we want to

be a part of you

we’re born for that

 

and like you

as you

we make the way

of wonder

 

grow with us

love us

teach us

let us in the world

 

we are here, we are ready to serve

in our own way, yes, our way

which we share with you, all people

you know we are

 

receive and send

it is our way, isn’t it

we here on Earth

and in the clouds of soaring

dreams and directions

 

who knows where we land

but take off with us and all set down

together

our lives, our homes, our world

our given places

all our lives

all our loves

 

we dream, stand up
