A dear friend of mine from years ago sends me poems occasionally about my journey with Maxwell. These beautiful words were written for Max's recent birthday. Thank you Anara for sharing your amazing gift with us.
Heavenly Father made a special pair
And oh, what a love these two would share.
The one he gave a spirit strong as steel
To hold up against all she would feel.
The awe and wonder of her beautiful child
Knowing his life would be anything but mild.
The other he gave a spirit full of trust
To help him bear what he knew he must.
A life that is different from all of the rest
And pureness of heart to help him pass the test.
Together they are the perfect halves to a whole
And oh, what a wondrous sight to behold.
