Thank Hashem

When a child
comprehends
whatever you're saying
the first time you said
-don't take it for granted.

When a child
agrees
to do whatever you've asked him
the first time you did
-don't take it for granted.

When a child
can participate
in whatever you're doing
just plain with ease
-don't take it for granted.

….For I have
a special brother
and I know
how it is…..
