She was deaf, and he came to her.
He came to help her with her speech.
Between them true love did occur.
They were devoted, each to each.
They married, and she gave to him
A piano to play each day,
So that their love might never dim.
She could not hear, but watched him play.
Together for forty five years,
He was first to end of the line.
She watched him leave her through her tears,
Saying a last good bye in sign.
Alexander Graham Bell's life
Was fulfilled with Mabel, his wife.
