The Blind Cannot See You


The blind cannot see you,
the deaf cannot hear you,
the mute cannot speak to you,
the lame cannot embrace you,
because you are blind, deaf, mute and lame.

Does the sea not wash all the shores?
Does it care about sandy beaches, rocky coasts
or stinking swamps?

You are lost in your own sea.

Heaven knows not that you are lost.
It is you who lost heaven.
And even this you do not know.

Therefore my friend, see, hear, speak
and embrace.
