The expressions in your face
Show the words you can not say
Not a fault, of yours nor I,
But of Apraxia,

Unknown to most….
It is not heard, nor seen,
But a Voice it takes

Scared parents…cry…worry
While surrounded by others…
Who just can’t understand

The fate, the destiny of their loved child
Seem unfounded through the endless wait…
With ears constantly ready for that first word
Joyful tears pour out when it’s finally heard

Words…movements… Sounds, may be found
Only to be lost once more,
And re-found at a later date
Dreams only to remain are those shared

Between child and parent
A bond always remains
