She was 4 when she sang her first song,
Music was her everything and she knew that all along
She wanted to fill every bit of her with music
But only if she knew, what was in store to deal with
She could have avoided, devastating her
She could have avoided, drowning her
But as they say, life never stops
She knew she had to live, how much ever she lost
The memory of her losing the hearing ability, Still fresh in her mind
Trembling she was, losing her senses one at a time
A mere infection, made her sacrifice
Her dream, her everything…..
Yes it will take time
Only for her father, so strong as he was
Gave her the ray of hope, she needed to stop the rundown
I cannot hear daddy – she said
How will I play the guitar? – gutter she felt
You may be deaf but you are not blind,
Open your eyes and see the right sign
She connected her tuner to the guitar and felt
Music once again, life she dealt
Her motto since then is to strive,
Oh Mandy, You ought to try!
