Deaf Love

More than 80 years ago
My mother came to love
A deaf man,

A man who barely heard
Her spoken words,
Her tender thoughts.

How did they court?
How did they converse?
How did their hearts meet?

All I know about for sure
Are the results:
My brother, me, our family,

Our happy life together,
A family that learned
To bridge silence.
