The Soundtrack Of My Life

by Kitty Cat Lady   Sep 5, 2017

How I envied you all
With your senses intact
How I often wished so hard
That I could get mine back

But not since that accident
Have I really been whole
How I regretted that day
The one that fate stole

The ringing in my ears
Fanfare a sense's death
The awful realisation
That I'd spend my life deaf

Never to hear running water
Or the call of the birds
This silence now shrouds me
Quiet is my world

The grief for the music
That exists only in my mind
The voices of loved ones
Shouting, thinking they're kind

But do you know what?
I lost less than I gained
For now I watch carefully
And I notice your pain

For bodies they speak
So much louder than words
It's the things that you do
That's what longs to be heard

Every nuance of your expression
And how you gesticulate
Says so much more than voices can
When you communicate

So don't be feeling sorry
Don't worry that I have strife
That familiar ring accompanies me still
It's the soundtrack of my life.
