Wish that I could hear
Your sweet voice so dear
Twas circumstance that took me away
Mortar shells found me that fateful day
Blood pouring out my ears
Amidst my painful tears

Silence envelops me now
My lips curl up to smile
Your picture on my vanity
To remind me of some sanity
Ringing in my ears
Define my present fears

Deaf to Godís sweet sounds
While Iím wheelchair bound
My shrapnel-pierced eardrum
Leaves me raw and numb
Damn those who hear
That once I held sincere

I love yous all but gone
No more silly love song
My world of temporal beats
As I succumb to sleep
Your sweet melodious voice
Leaves me no other choice
