Little Pieces of Little Papers

When I'm cleaning
I find her hope;
little pieces of little papers
tucked away
in little places.

silent, secret wishes
of what needs repaired - that no one
can fix or fully understand
her urgency - for 
they see no flaws.

And I cry, a cry
for her, because
she won't - So, I dust
around her notes
respecting her reminders
of miracle ears; 
little pictures of little things
promising to hide
that which she displays everyday
alone in this
in-between world
that the deaf can't hear 
and the hearing can -
what she can't
change, without her little pieces
of little papers 
that she tucks away
in little places.

    thanks daver. This is about my daughter who has worn hearing aides in both ears since she was three years old. I would find little ads cut out of newspapers - folded up in little spots in her room and I too would choke up.. this poem came out of me so fast and fluid. I cried the whole time I was writing it.
