I’d Set the World On Fire For my Special Needs Child

I’d set the world on fire for you.

A thousand times, again and again if it meant you'd be safe.

I'd set the world on fire for you.

When someone tries to hurt you, to make you feel bad or lesser than the amazing person that you are.

I'd set the world on fire for you.

To make all of your dreams come true, no matter who tries to tell you they won't or thinks they can get in the way of them.

I'd set the world on fire for you.

To give you everything you need in this life and long after I'm gone - so that you will be taken care of and loved by others that also know how wonderful you are.

I'd set the world on fire for you.

If it meant showing the world all of your capabilities and not just what you can't do.

I'd set the world on fire for you.

Even if I come off a little crazy, a little mad, or whatever else they might sling at me - I don't care because I'm just fighting for you in everyway possible.

I'd set the world on fire for you.

Because you deserve it. You deserve the very best of the best and so much more than that still.

I'd set the world on fire for you.

Always and forever, without question or explanation I'd do it, again and again because you are the reason there is a fire burning inside my mama heart in the first place.
