If I Were Blind

If I Were Blind

A Poem by Sianna Reader
"

I know I'd be able to see...even if I couldn't see at all.

"

If I were blind, I know I could see,

The beauty of life, each leaf on each tree,

Each bird as it sang, the children at play,

The twilight, the brightness of each brand new day.

 

Oh if I were blind, in my heart I would find,

The love of another, the blood of my kind,

For my eyes are my mothers and in her you’ll see,

The very foundations that made me be me.

 

And if I were blind, I’d listen, engage,

To my sweet little Charlie, my Pheobe, my Paige,

For they are the future, and within my mind,

I’d see them so clearly, even if I were blind!

 

Yes if I were blind, to that boy I would tell,

That I love him so dearly, that I love him so well,

And my eyes would not see his musing reflection,

And would not endure the looming rejection.

 

So if I were blind, I say let it be,

For life is much more than what you can see,

And loved ones are better; I’d rather have them,

And as long as their close I’ll see time and again.

THis is the most powerful stanza in the poem. It stands out and means everything!!!! You did a good job expressing the emotion and feelings and I could feel it too!!!

This has such a wonderful ring to it.. as if you're not just (tho not a good word) thinking of blindness but if ANYTHING were wrong, you'd never stop loving your family .. nothing would ever change your feelings.

Your actual writing and meter is great for much of the poem, reads beautifully .. not sure in one place but somehow, it just doesnt matter. (4th stanza, final line fourth line) also, typo (final line.. 'they're' not' their')

I think this is a touching poem, and, somehow, I feel, absolutely genuine.
