The flow of your hands,
The gestures you make.
I watch in amazement;
There’s not a single mistake.

I want to learn
You want to teach.
When we come together
There are thousands we will reach.

I practice and practice.
I practice every day.
The more I memorize,
The more I have to say.

Sign language is your name,
And you help me relief my strife.
Sign language is a very powerful thing;
Sign language is my life.

The author's comments:
I love sign language. It fulfills a need of mine that was empty for a long time.
