They have become red
Blood-shot is what may be called
I worry, I believed they were with me Forever!
Now I am down, lying down.
I think, I see, I wonder.
What will happen when I lose them?
Suddenly I love colors, even the drab walls appear brilliantly hued.
Can I imagine not having them?
I’m scared, petrified for a second.
It cannot happen.
But life can sometimes make a “cannot” into a “can”
I will not fight life. I will flow with it. Into it.
Let it happen, if it must happen.
I shall stand with a smile.
So what if I may not see.
I have drunk enough of life’s beauty. Thats good enough.
I still have a heart. It loves and so I can create .
I have a mind. It thinks and so I can Imagine.
With these, I can See, even without “them”.
Darkness comes eventually, to all of us
For me, It’s a just little ahead of schedule.
You may ask – Won’t you be sad?
Yes. I can no longer See.
The tears will flow.
Then comes the joy.
At least they can cry.
So what if they can’t see any more!
Now I see
