Notes: I have been blessed to have someone far more talented than I, assist me, in learning, and assist me in improving my writing. It’s a joy to learn, and I have learned not only by their kind help, but by reading their poetry as well. It may seem a small deed or detail; however for me, in my passion of writing, this is truly a tremendous gift. It is not e an easy task to edit and help, because you have to wear the cloth of the person you are helping, and this is a gift. Poetry is such a personal form of expression, and I know is not easy to suggest change and yet not bruise an ego.

I am immensely thankful and I truly hope that I have made someone smile!

About this poem: I do not consider this a great write. So I will explain something I have expressed to many fellow poets. A poem from the heart, a poem filled with compassion and empathy and beauty need not be the perfect poem. One who is true to form and rules may write the perfectly constructed poem, and leave people cold and un-interested.

A poem may also be lacking without context, as indeed this one may be, I hope however I have provided that context by the video. That being true, I am ever grateful that at least I had help to make it presentable!

Try to live
Try to feel pain with no tears
Try to remember years past and often lost
Try, oh try to know life need not be cold as frost

Ear not the words of those proclaiming silence
Listen to the rhythmic melody; give voice to a new start
The world will follow when you sing from your heart
Believing in things that some may only try

Try, to see, the truth is musical to you and all of thee
Telling histories with music, as soothing as can be
When you sing, and when you inspire our romance
Ones on crutches, they too shall rise and dance

Try, I beg
To see as eye
Even the ear is lost in the sky
Purest of hearts, they never die

Really wonderfully written and expressed ... we have so much we take for granted, but if we just stay sensitive and open to those around us, we realize how much WE really have, and what's truly important. Thank you for this exquisite reminder! Love it!

We never know joy until we know pain, there is always someone who suffers more than we do and this should make us appreciate our blessings each day. A truly inspiring poem written from the heart.

Wonderful song, amazing person and you did this poem to match, what an outstanding job, Arthur, just wonderful interpretation. I agree wholeheartedly with you, perfect form means nothing if it doesn't touch the reader, this definitely touches a lot of emotions!

I saw this too, arthur. She was amazing. And the other night had some wow moments as well. I love that show so much. do they have it in Canada (like "Canada's got Talent")? Your poem is so true what it says about purest of hearts.

An amazing video and your fine poem so represented the spirit of facing hardships and overcoming great obstacles- always begins when one has the courage to just- Try. Try their best. And do so with heart and soul.. Your gem is a positive ten and a fav..

I watched this on AGT on tv Arthur. It is a moving video. The deaf are helped by feeling vibrations. I was married to a deaf man for twelve years and I am an uncertified interpreter for the deaf. This particular lady was blessed with being able to hear in her past which helped her with her vocals, yet her triumph is none the less great. Your poem celebrates her triumph. Lovely! : )

I saw this the other day and it was pretty awesome that she could still play and sing by just vibration since she had lost her hearing I think at the age of 18 from some sort of nerve disease . Love your purity in your words.
