Touch Me Softly

Touch Me Softly

Touch me softly,
As I sit here.
I do not stir,
When you draw near.

My eyes are closed,
As I read.
You stand beside me,
I pay no heed.

My hands glide quickly,
I feel each word.
They are not printed,
They can't be heard.

My book has dots,
With fingers I feel.
I touch them all,
Words become real.

Do you understand,
As you gaze at me?
I am looking,
But I can't see.

No light or color,
For I am blind.
Eyes unseeing,
But sharp of mind.

Touch me softly,
Feel with love.
Sweet gentle hands,
A pat from above.

Touch me softly.
With tenderness.
Together we'll find,
True happiness.

Touch me softly,
For that's not all.
I will not hear you,
When you call.

I am deaf,
I can not hear.
I live in silence,
But I don't fear.

Did you speak?
Was that you?
The words are gone,
Away they flew.

But I can listen,
With my hand.
In that way,
I understand.

Touch me softly,
Feel with love.
Sweet gentle hands,
A pat from above.

Touch me softly.
With tenderness.
Together we'll find,
True happiness.

Deaf and blind,
Silent and black.
I trudge alone,
This endless track.

It is my life.
It is my way.
I can do it.
Forever, I'll stay.

Strong and true.
With touch to guide.
Always with passion,
Spirit inside.

Fear me not,
Believe I can.
I'll change your life.
You'll understand.

Touch me softly,
Feel with love.
Sweet gentle hands,
A pat from above.

Touch me softly.
With tenderness.
Together we'll find,
True happiness.
