One day, When I went deaf...

One day, When I went deaf,
I learned to love,
the silence deep within;
the tranquility of peace,
and places I had been.

When I lost my hearing,
I retired from the race;
from the robot way of living,
with work's quite brutal pace.

I soon became a transient,
a face without a name;
handicapped and stamped,
as a person on the wane.

Unspoken and unseen my fate,
ignored by senseless chatter;
I was talked around, not at,
for them, I didn't matter.

One day, When I went deaf,
I learned to love,
the stolen, quiet times;
to sit and type these poems,
and hope to God, they rhyme.

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
