A Blind Friend


I have a blind Friend
He's called Ronny
Ron's very Clever
We play Backgammon
Together, amongst
Other things
But I am Worried!
Every time I say Goodbye
I say: 'See ya Later', Ron
Some how I do not Think,
These are the 'right' words?
Maybe something Like,
I'll Smell you later or,
I'll Feel, Taste or Touch you Later
I should work on My
Communication Skills!

    LOLOL, you will definitely see him, he just won't see you. I'm sure Ronny doesn't give it a second thought, he's just happy you're there. Lovely poem-Melvina- (Report) Reply

    Hi David, I liked this poem. I hope your blind friend can hear it. I had a blind room mate once and I came in to the living and said 'What have you been doing lately? ' She said 'Oh nothing. Just watching TV.' She then started laughing saying, 'Well, I am listening to it.' Actually if you ever wanted to know what was going on in a movie or TV show, she was the best person to tell you about it. Her hearing was so good she could hear you all the way down the hall. I had a boyfriend who smoked a pipe and she could tell it was him in the distance before she could even hear him. She had this acute sense of smell. Amazing. I learned lots from her. Thanks for writing this poem. (Report) Reply

    I don't understand your problem - u will see Ronnie later, because he's the blind one, not you. I'm confused. (Report) Reply

    to see things in a different light.
    to touch things in a different texture
    to taste things in a differetn falvour
    to smell things in a different scent
    to hear things in a different sound
    good poem. i agree it is quite funny (Report) Reply

    I think this sort of thing is more embarrassing for the sayer than the person listening. I suppose they see us with the other senses, as you say touch, scent, sound, feel, etc., I suppose you could always say 'speak to you later'. Good poem with a good message. Love Ernestine XXX (Report) Reply

    I think this is funny Dave! My kids (and husband) actually are always saying ''Smell ya later! '' to people. They have twisted sense of humor like you do! :) Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
