If I were God that I may write
A miracle, one late night
A babe I’d craft inside my hand
With extra stuff, you understand.
This miracle I’d gently place inside
A place where people seem to die.
A place where most of them don’t live
to see the daylight privilege.
I’d place this babe inside this spot
and hide his extra special lot.
Until he’s born and then I’d watch
him placed into another spot.
Picked up by strangers just to lie
inside a crib, but he won’t die;
My miracles I sprinkle, grow
They get to earth, have seeds to sow.
And from his crib, his almond eyes
take in this world with small surprise.
His growth is slow, his steps are late,
Eyes radiate joy, and never hate.
And one sweet day, heart parents come
to collect their miracle child of one.
Across the sunset line they fly,
Arrow straight, they heard his cry
For lifelong love, a family he
Will join them all eternally.
This miracle boy with extra stuff
Has things to share with all of us.
Courage to love when all seems lost
Hugs to give, without cost.
Lessons taught by one so small
Nary taught by intellects tall.
Watches your face, always in tune
For when you’re sad, he’ll leave the room
Bring tissues, hugs, whatever helps.
Thinks of others, not himself.
Yes, if I could write a miracle child
And place him in the world a while
This is the story I would write,
If dark be overcome with light.
Treasures, most times, are hard to find
And what is valued by mankind?
Wealth and status, brains, power
Societal boots crushing flowers
Of quiet innocence, simplicity
Sweet life without toxicity.
Search high or low for power to wipe
Your tears, or comfort bleakest nights.
Yes, if I could write a miracle, this
Is the pattern I’d insist.
And if you have this miracle, you
Are highly blessed, through and through.
I tell you this that joy befalls
Those who answer miracle’s calls.
Miracles are both far and few
Answer the call. You’ll find what’s true.
Written for our little miracle boy, Lian Alexander Driver, by his Mama, Cady Driver. Lian, a miracle from start to finish…from his extra 21st chromosome to the fact that God brought him into our lives through adoption, and the blessings, joy, laugher, and love that He has poured out upon us is immeasurable.
In celebration of ALL of the miracles who are rocking the extra 21st chromosome.
One can only hope that you all find such a miracle.
