Blind Prince

For years I wandered in the wilderness, a blind man, eating roots and berries, and weeping over the loss of my wife. After many miseries, I wandered into a desert, and one day, I heard her song. I followed it until I felt her body in my arms. Her breath on my neck. Her tears on my eyes.
