Talkin' Corneal-Transplantation Gratitude



Talkin' Corneal-Transplantation 
Gratitude



Whispering voices beseech me,

through failing eyes unable to 
see,

riding the clouds floating on a 
dream,

my vision swept away in a frigid 
stream,

I clambered and clawed my way 
between the moss,

listening to sickly sweet 
platitudes of flimsy candy-floss,

and now I stand up again, I 
rise,

thanks to your selfless gift of 
your very own eyes,

owing a debt to a life that has 
passed away,

bequeathing unto me hopes of 
seeing this new day,

an unknown donor lives on, 
within my very eyes,

and I am eternally thankful, as 
each night and day flies,

to you whom I shall never 
know, my anonymous giver of 
sight,

my gratitude is endless, as I 
wish you peace, on your final 
flight.



(to the unknown donors of the 
Corneas that I have so 
fortunately received)

It touches me deeply that my scribbles touch you, and I wish you safe and pleasant travels, and peace and happiness :-) Yes, the remarkable gift of a donated Cornea is beyond words ... And I am eternally grateful! Stay well and peace and joy to you and yours...
