Blind and Deaf

Blind and Deaf To never see the world to never hear a sound always having to feel my way around To never see my mother father or brother to never hear them say a word is like hanging for life, on the thinnest cord To never hear my voice to never see my face is like living without a trace For me nothing is ever clear the world is filled with darkness and fear What is the sunset? I do not know for in my world, it will never show What is music? how does it sound? it's something in my world I've never found and, never will My world is silent, and always black but courage is something, I do not lack On my heart, lies a wish that's true wishing to see the world, as clear as you. Authors note: Just a reminder of how precious our sight and hearing is. It is truly a wondrous gift, we must all be thankful for ......In honor of Helen Keller.......Always Maryam

A good reminder. We take for granted each day the gifts of hearing, of sight, of using our hands or legs...we should always be grateful for the things we do every day, things we do without a thought. ~ Good thought provoking poem. ~ Carrie
