Can you hear the rain falling
Or smell that perfumed rose?
Thank God for ears to listen with;
Thank God to have a nose.
Can you see the golden sun
Which rises every dawn?
In autumn do you watch red leaves
Drift down to clothe the lawn?
Can you see your mother’s smile
Or feel your father’s kiss?
Without our senses try to think
Of all the things we’d miss.
We'd never hear good music played
Or feel a gentle touch:
Without our senses - yes all five -
We’d miss out on so much.
