Believe? - Poem by Pene Burkey

People say seeing is believing.

Close your eyes....

Can you smell the rain before it drops?
Can you feel the sun rise or set on your face?
Can you see the beauty of music?
Can you taste the kiss of love?
Can you hear the pain of heartbreak?

Is only seeing believing?

    Faith is believing without seeing...a blind man is more sensitive than a normal person who could percieve well! ! ! (Report)Reply
