When My Eyes Can’t See

By

When my eyes can’t see 

I’ll still be able to smell and hear and feel 

And my eyes will see without seeing
When my ears can’t hear

I’ll still be able to smell and feel 

And my eyes will be seeing without seeing

And so my ears will hear through them

When my sense of smell goes 

I’ll still be able to feel 

And my eyes will see without seeing

My ears will hear anyway 

And so I’ll be able to smell

When I am unable to feel any more 

I’ll still be able to feel and see and smell and hear 

For my mind will sense the flow of energy all around 

And that’s how I have always lived 

And so my heart will still beat.

When my mind moves on
And all else is gone

I’ll still be able to live 

With every fibre of my being

Because the beacon of light in my heart 

Will shine its light forth

And every beat shall celebrate my eternal love 

For life and the living.

And my body, my entire existence

Shall dance to my heart’s music

And when my heart stops beating

After all its encores

I will live on in the echo

Of my life in the world 

For what is life but an eternal presence 

That moves sights, sounds, smells, feelings and vision?

For what is life but a force, an energy 

So vibrant that it permeates all darkness?

And how can one die when there is such a nurturing life force shining in you all your life?

When the music is over

The silence thereafter 

Is the realisation that there was music

And the air waves dance on long after.

When I won’t be living any more 

That is when I’ll be more alive 

In the waves my life shall leave behind.
