looking for some trim...

in red, white or blue
it looks like sarah
has been here too
for the longest time
sarah liked to twirl ribbons
in the world of down syndrome and autism
professionals refer to it as stimming
i saw it as my daughter
playing with my stash
there is a drawer in the sewing room
full of elastic, trims and ribbon
it is a twisted mess
as you can see
i purposely leave it in disarray
as a reminder of each time
sarah would sneak down
thinking no one was looking
to take another ribbon
to satisfy this need within her
she eventually grew out of that habit
still each time i open
this drawer
i see her sweet little face
with a big cheezy grin
being caught
when i walked in
