A celebration now you're eighteen
I'm the proudest mum anyone has seen
From a baby and wiping your bum
I've seen you grow into the adult you have become
It's been a busy eighteen years
so I think we can raise a glass and say cheers
You were diagnosed with Autism at an early age
every day your life starts on a brand new page
You have conquered having very little speech
and always been at school for the staff ready to teach
After setting your targets we have so many to thank
not just the teachers but Thomas the Tank
Whatever you face a smile is there
it stops people short with their quizzical stare
For sometimes you act a little different to them
but to me though you are a precious little gem
So what if you are loud and like Fireman Sam
I'll let you into a secret, I'm also a fan
Onwards we shall continue as we've always done
Happy 18th Birthday my beautiful Son
