Everyone's eyes look to you
for heavenly sustenance they hope
setting their souls in motion
so in future can cope


Without looking in the mirror
things lack dimension and time
no defined features or words
a song lacking in rhyme


The blind are never satisfied
because food they cannot see
study Torah constantly to serve
but understanding will never be


The trust in G-d creates
a vessel to hold light
by seeing sun and moon
receive bounty that is right

About the Author:

[object Object]Dr. Harry Hamburger is a neuro-ophthalmologist, who also has a Masters degree and certification as a Family and Medical mediator. He is called upon to do ethical consults at local hospitals in the greater Miami, Florida area where he lives.

Married to Claudia, the Hamburgers have two boys - Jordan 15, and Joshua 9.  Part of Jordan’s bar mitzvah celebration consisted of visiting Israel, where he read part of his Torah portion on top of Masada.  Joshua is a very spiritual young boy who lecturers his Dad daily on proper behavior.

After visiting Israel twice, Dr. Hamburger says, “I feel like it is my real home, and that I am living in exile in Miami.  I hope one day to have a home in Israel.” The doctor is a serious student of both Chabad and Breslov Chasidism, and supports both. Dr. Hamburger is also a long time benefactor of the Lev LaLev Fund.
