He was just out riding his chopper,
All of a sudden he came a cropper.
A head on collision with another lad.
His head hit the kerb at a terrific rate
The trauma he had, left him in a state.
When he came to in A&E they did find,
The injury he suffered had made him blind.
He screamed and reacted as any child would,
They needed to calm him for an X-ray check up
His fear gave him strength and he tried to get up,
It took strong men to hold him down on the bed,
While they calmed him down to examine his head.
The doctor said he would check again the next day.
His parents were with him throughout the night,
They informed us of his terrible plight.
He was blind and frightened,as he lay on the bed,
Covered in bruises where hands clamped him down.
We were so scared for him and so very far away,
The only thing we could do was to pray and pray.
We prayed all night for his injuries to allay.
When came the dawn and the doctor came back,
Our prayers had been answered as only God could.
Our grandsons sight returned, we thanked Him as one,
Not only did his sight return, every bruise was gone.
His memory too of that whole event was erased,
We again both said, God Be Praised.

This happened to our grandson some years ago. The same lad received his BA & Masters degree this year from Swansea University.
