A Hundred Kisses a Day - A Poem for Guada, My Child With Down Syndrome

Tuesday, January 15, 2013


- by Carmina Villanueva-Huet

A hundred kisses a day,
Is all I need.
From Guada, an angel indeed!
A gift from heaven,
That God has given.


A hundred kisses a day,
Is all I need,
Even if she cannot say,
"I love you, Mommy!" or
"Thank you for taking care of me.".

A hundred kisses a day,
Is all I need.
To overcome my fears,
or to wipe my tears.
Even when no one sees or hears.

A hundred kisses a day,
Is all I need.
To go on living,
To keep on trying,
And continue on loving.

A hundred kisses a day,
Is all I need.
You are always bubbly,
As I cuddle you fondly.
Or how you make me happy.

  2. That's lovely and the pics are gorgeous. We had to contemplate what it would be like to welcome a child with Down syndrome into our family last year, but life turned out differently.
