The Blind Man's Wife - Poem by Chauncey Chen

The blind man's wife, a shining star!
Like a non-vanishing light in the darkest infinity,
You guide the blind man to his destiny. Through your words of supreme good,
The unfortunate blind man sees
The sun, the moon, and the stars;
The mountains, the forests, and the seas,
And God's gracious faces. You are the truth, the way to your man,
He follows you all along with attention.
You need no cosmetics and no fashion,
Your beauty is beyond his imagination. Lifetime's selfless sacrifice,
Rewarded only with sightless eyes.
Though happiness may have gone afar,
Yet no mortal is ever as you are:
Overpowering the soul of a man
With love's power mighty -
The Truth, the Goodness, and the Beauty!
