A LINE ACROSS HIS HAND

Dear Friend,

Below please find a copy of the lyrics to A LINE ACROSS HIS HAND a song about Down syndrome.   I wrote these words down a year and a half ago after I heard them in a dream. In the dream it was a country song sung by a man with a deep, emotional voice. When I woke from the dream I immediately wrote down  what I remembered.  It took me a pain staking month to fill in the blanks. It is my hope that someday the lyrics will land in the hands of the person who is meant to write the music.  
 
I am a Special Education teacher who has had the privilege of working with and loving many children with Down syndrome.  I do not have a child of my own with Down syndrome.  It is my hope that this song will help people understand that all children lives should be celebrated.

Peace,

Deb Sardone

 


A LINE ACROSS HIS HAND a song about Down syndrome.



 
 The day my son was born the sun shone in the sky
 My life would change forever and heres the reason why
 You see my son is different, things did not go as we planned
 For my son was born with a line across his hand
 
 A line across his hand
 A line across his hand
 Things did not go as we planned
 Because of the line across his hand.
 
 They said that he would be slow too learn and never read or write.
 But when he took his first steps  it was a special night.
 They said hed never be a man and always be a burden
 But hed show them wrong, it was the one thing I was certain
 
 A line across his hand
 A line across his hand
 When his hands held in mine
 I cant see that line across his hand
 
 Oh how very  hard  it was to learn to tie his shoe
 There were days we thought it was something hed never ever do
 But then one day he made the bow up right and neat
 Oh, his life aint always easy but his victories are sweet
 
 A  line across his hand
 A line across his hand
 That shoe  lace didnt care
 there was a line across his hand
 
 I always dreamed wed play with a baseball and a bat
 but in our life together we jog the High School track.
 There are many things  that he can do and things that he can not.
 Hes much more than the sum total of the syndrome that hes got.
 
 A line across his hand
 A line across his hand
 Dont judge who he is by
 that line across his hand.
 
 
 If I had the power to change his life Im not sure what Id do
 But his life has been a blessing tho Ive shed a tear or two
 I love my son more then I believed all those years ago
 I guess in  this life we do reap what we do sow
 
 A line across his hand
 A line across his hand
 Doesnt change the love you feel in side
 that line across his hand
 
 Now my son is grown and holds a job and has a lady friend
 He is proud and kind this message I will send
 
 A line across his hand
 A line across his hand
 They were wrong, I know that now
 this boy of mines a man >>
