I wish for you, my youngest daughter
A twisted sense of humour
To help you leap future hurdles.
I wish for you balance.
Happiness can accompany hardship
Dawn always follows the darkest of nights.
I wish for you loyal friendship
With another Type 1 diabetic child
Who knows the path that you walk daily.
I wish for you understanding.
Knowing that the tears I hide
Aren’t anything that you’ve done to me.
I wish for you tenacity
Never giving up, never surrendering
Never letting Diabetes have the last word.
I wish for you a discovery of faith
Faith in a higher power
You may have feel condemned you.
I wish for you nerves of steel
for the 26,280 finger pokes
You will have experienced by age nineteen.
I wish for you a long happy life
Overflowing with good health and contentment
I wish for you a cure tomorrow.
I’d sell my soul for one today.
Just for you
