If I couldn't see

If I couldn't see 

If I couldn't see
how could I go to the
art museum every Wednesday at noon?

would I notice any difference from a
CD or a concert?

could I still tie my shoes?

would I still care enough to
buy new clothes each season?

or to wear red lipstick and
purple eyeshadow?

would I be able to find your
lips to kiss you?

could I still fly a kite
or marvel at the deep blue sky?

would I have to give up painting,
sewing, knitting, drawing, sketching?

could I still read a book each night
before my dreams take over?

If I couldn't see
could I look in the empty mirror
and feel my own presence?
