Ode To My Wife – From a Blind Man

in 1972 - 1973

Even though I may dwell in darkness all my life

I shall always remember the kiss of my wife

And if this kiss you have given to me

Has meant something which is a great deal to thee

Please tell me so that the burden of my life

May be relieved by the words of my wife.

 


The burden which I have been through these years
Has constantly driven me to tears
But this burden has been relieved
Through the words of a woman I believe
These words which have given me hope
Has helped me with my burden to cope
This burden which has done me great harm
Has now at last been calmed.

 

Even in these last years of my life
Oh! Oh!  My beautiful wife!
You who have made me come alive
My hope shall continue to make me thrive
Through these burdens which I have been able survive
These are the words to my wife
Who has brought the meaning of into my life.
