An Outing with Lauren

February 5, 2010

Her Name is Lauren

Hello cutie, shopping with Mom today?
Oh...she doesn’t talk.

Why’s that girl in a wheelchair, Dad?
Oh...she doesn’t walk.

Why is she making that noise?
What are those things on her legs?
Why is she rocking like that?
I wonder,
          What is her name?

Her name is Lauren.

Her sparkling eyes see you, I think.
Her cherry lips have never formed words.
Her coltish legs don’t know how to dance.
Her slim body rocks to a tune only she hears.

Her name is Lauren.

What’s she listening to on those headphones?
Oh...I like country, too.

Lauren, do you like shopping at the mall? that smile a clue?
