A Blind Man's Poem
Author: ShyHeart


I remember all those tears, they came from unkind words, my eyes were blind
I remember now, no, I see, the words, I did not mean to say, blinded, by my
Eyes, now I see, since I let my heart, become my eyes, I feel more than my
Eyes, ever saw, my eyes were blind, refused to see, what my heart saw, my
Eyes were blind, take a look at life, close your eyes, see and feel what your
Heart knows, is true, don't be blinded, by your eyes

Speak, no unkind words, for your heart, tells you, that is wrong, close your eyes
Let your heart see, what your eyes, never see, be kind, loving, understanding
Close your eyes, open up your heart and see, what, eyes never see, from a
blind man's, point of view

These words, come from eyes, that could never see or feel, then I opened
Up my heart, now, I am blind, to seeing words, now, I trust my heart, to see all
The words, and advise me, what do I see, God, if, you love, anything at all this I
Say to you, close your eyes, feel the heart inside of you. This I have learned
Since I opened up my heart, now, I can see and read a Blind Man's Poem

Thanks Martin

Are you deaf, blind, and dumb? Can't you get it through your thick skull? My boss barking everyday at work. I speak no unkind words, I close my eyes and ears to his foul mouth. I really need this job. I think of my dog, that needs dog food, and my sweet wife in need of medication, so I try to see behind that loud voice, always barking at me. Oh do I try to be kind and understanding, holding my voice from barking back, and now I know, and your right Martin, to open your heart, because I know now, he is really trying to teach me, and to make sure his job goes well, and we look good together and I am a much better person because I can do those things you say and not be blinded by his words, because he doesn't mean to be mean, but to teach. Thanks Martin for a very nice poem that means something to me.-----Dino
