In a room of noisy people
My hearings made feeble
Don't turn away when you speak
For it's your face and lips I seek

Come take my hand
Please understand
The words are not clear
In my troubled ears

You don't need to shout
Or even spell it out
Let me be clear I can't hear

If you want me to know
Just face me; go slow
Now I can see words clear
That is the way I can hear

If you see my puzzled frown
Then: you must write it down
Don't worry if you look odd
I'm speech- reading; watch my nod
