Seeing is vital

Seeing is vital, whether physically or emotionally.

“Seeing is believing.”
“I saw the light.”

==============

Cataract recovery is weird

No pain..
Yet restrictions abound

  • No bending lower than waist
  • No rubbing eyes
  • No heavy lifting
  • Wear special sunglasses outside,rain or shine
  • Four different eyedrops 4x a day

Vision is distorted because only one eye is fixed so far.

===================

HOWEVER — I AM NOT COMPAINING!!

There’s gotta be a poem here but I haven’t found it yet!

=======================

This is the last day of #NaPoWriMo, and I plan to continue creating until I come up with something good. Thanks for reading along this month. I hope you will stick around after too.

Time passes on

It seems I forget

Next thing I know

My thoughts and memories are awakened

It’s been awhile since I’ve talked to her….

And then I remember

I can’t call her any more

She won’t read my emails

Or listen to the tales of her grandchildren

She can’t listen to my never ending aches and pains

I won’t hear the love in her voice for me and sadness in her voice because of her continual pain….

She is gone

She is dead

She no longer feels pain

I can’t hear her voice any more

I still have pain

I remember … and then

I forget… again

Another day ends

A new day begins

Miss you Mommy!

Love you!
