Love (Deaf And Dumb Couple) - Poem by U Win Kyi

He didn't sack
She didn't nag.
Both were deaf.
He didn't verbally abuse.
She didn't retort back rude.
Both were mute.
He didn't say bullshits from wagging tongue.
She just ignored and kept silently mum.
He didn't say a harsh word.
which would cut like a slashing sword.
They neither shouted 'Go to hell.'
nor fighting in a noisy quarrel.
He never made a severe scold.
She knew silence was a policy of gold.
They communicated by body language,
without ambiguity but with clear message.
They didn't know how to say 'love'.
but they were always in a hug.
Tenderly he would caress.
Lovingly she would help.
Softly he wiped her tears dry,
Sobbingly when she cried.
Though romantic talk they couldn't utter,
their loving action spoke much louder.
Many love stories, they had told,
not by mouth but by eyes....a soul's window.

Gossip, bluff, cheat and lie
were not spoken until they died.
Deaf and Dumb was fully blessed,
because they didn't make a comment.. so scathe.
