Someday….. (Soliloquy of an Autistic child)

You smile
I gaze
You laugh
I stare
You reach out to me
I turn around
Your words confuse me
Loud sounds scare me
You don’t understand

Your anxiety
When I fall
Your concern
When I don’t react
Your words
“Are you hurt”
The wetness in your eyes
Your holding me close
I don’t understand

I turn away
To familiar grounds
To my toys
To my window
You will understand
And so will I
