Joe, my beloved friend,
Caring, loyal till the very end.
With him life is never dull,
He has a wit that's sharp and full.
He sees the world in a different way,
His autism makes it so every day.
But that is not a cause for despair,
For he has a different kind of flair.
Joe's quirks make him who he is,
And though not every social cue he gets,
He has a heart of purest gold,
Loyal to a fault and always bold.
Many think autism is a curse,
But with Joe life is never worse.
For everything that makes him unique,
Makes him a friend anyone would like to seek.
So cheers to Joe and his autism,
A different perspective for us to listen.
For in his difference we can see,
A world that could be brighter for you and me.
