This is another poem for Poetic Asides. See the previous post for information on Poetic Asides by Robert Lee Brewer!
Love is Deaf and Blind She looked so average so pretty and normal. He fell in love at first sigh, yes sigh, not sight, he was blind. She, of course, did not hear him because she was, naturally, deaf. She fell for him at first touch. But having no common means of communication, their relationship was difficult. She could read his lips, but he kept his head down to hide his eyes. He could not understand her words, for though she would talk, the words were not clear. Still they persevered having four normal children between them. These were the gifted ones, able to communicate with deaf and blind and translate the frustration and anger of their parents, who truly did love each other, into love.
