Blind from birth, but in reality, I am truly blessed
For I am in tune with the world and everything in it
God didn't take from me, he gave me a beautiful gift
The gift to be plugged into nature and her wonders
Most people hear birdsong, but they only hear chirping
When I experience a robin sing....I hear a symphony
Every note perfectly pitched, a glorious chromatic treasure
It makes my joyful heart sing in amazing appreciation
Then there is the ocean, the magnificent waves thundering
Like the tympany drums in an orchestra....ezquisite resonance
The wind, whistleling through a narrow plaza at high noon
The upper end of a soprano aria, sung by young maidens
It brings a tear to my dead eyes and fills them with new life
And have you ever heard a coyote in the high desert?
Two or more, wailing in a mournful, ethereal harmony
It chills the spine in a very lovely, surreal, hypnotic way
All these things I see, by hearing their magical canticle
Do you understand what I'm meaning? Is it in you to see?
The miracle of a newborn baby's cries in it's mother's bosom
All the melodious magic in a child's laughter....an angelic choir
Oh, my friend, you are missing the most wonderful things in life
Things that most all sighted folks have taken forever for granted
That is why I tell you how great my life is, don't feel sorry for me
Because if you could see what I hear, you'd swear you were in Heaven!
