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 here’s 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 he’d never be a man and always be a burden
 But he’d show them wrong, it was the one thing I was certain

 A line across his hand
 A line across his hand
 When his hand’s held in mine
 I can’t 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 he’d never ever do
 But then one day he made the bow up right and neat
 Oh, his life ain’t always easy but his victories are sweet

 A line across his hand
 A line across his hand
 That shoe lace didn’t care
 there was a line across his hand

 I always dreamed we’d 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.
 He’s much more than the sum total of the syndrome that he’s got.

 A line across his hand
 A line across his hand
 Don’t judge who he is by
 that line across his hand.

 If I had the power to change his life I’m not sure what I’d do
 But his life has been a blessing ‘tho I’ve 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
 Doesn’t 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 mine’s a man >>
