I don’t need eyes to see;
I don’t need eyes to see the pain in you!
I don’t need hands to touch;
I don’t need hands to touch the scar in you!
I don’t need ears to hear;
I don’t need ears to hear the scream you scream within!
I don’t need a mouth to taste;
I don’t need a mouth to taste all what you’ve been fed by life;
Dear … I just need you to trust;
I just need you to trust…that I feel YOU…
To trust that I don’t really need eyes to see…

Dedicated to the memory of Gabriel and to my 4 sons
P.S: The above poem is an apt summary of my week. Was wondering what or how to write all I have had in me/dealt with this week – another thrilling one with lots of love and lows…and the poetic inspiration came in as I walked to and fro the market. I so love it … Actually, it is a soul search and summary from me to ME, me to YOU, me to THEM, said with love, encouragement, some supplication and yes some defiance… I miss you Gaby, I didn’t know as much nor did so much back then, but I promise you I will do so much henceforth till my own time is up…
