A Poem From A Grandmother To Her ADHDer Grandson

I really do have the most amazing family… my mommy darling emailed this to me yesterday and said I could share it with all of you… I had a big lump in my throat all day!

MY AMAZING BOY

If I could only understand and see inside your head!

If I could simply grasp your thoughts and feel them in my hands –

The world is full of little words like ‘if’ and ‘sorry’ and ‘I promise’ ….

How do I see inside your mind and hold onto the bouncing ideas

that move faster than the speed of light in flashing colours and sounds?

You feel so very far away and yet, you are right here.

It seems there are worlds between us and yet, you are right here.

Then suddenly

there is a brilliant smile on your lovely face

and my soul leaps with joy!

Suddenly

you open the window just a little bit and we share a rainbow.

Your lovely brown eyes look into to my faded blue eyes,

heart to heart.

Mind to mind.

I treasure those instances.

There was harmony in you for a that moment.

If you and I could only see in your head all the potential,

the love, the kindness, the genius lying therein!

Would it be easier for you, my dearest adder?

If I could only understand and see inside your head!

If I could simply grasp your thoughts and feel them fluttering in my hands –

would it be easier for me, my dearest adder?

and for yet more insight into an incredible ADHDer brain, you must go and see what Tracy had to say-p she’s an ADHDer and a mom to ADHDers and she writes the most amazing poetry herself!
