I had been having awful headaches that sapped my strength and made my physically ill.

I got so I couldn't see clearly at all and was even having double vision.

Not only did I have cataracts I also had a degeneration thing going.

Forget what he called it.

Anyway, The surgeries on both eyes are over and I see a lot better now.

Have these eye drops several times a day but that's okay.

It's just for a month.

Take are of your eyes.

You only get one pair so don't strain them.

God Bless,


I was apprehensive.
I guess a little scared;
Though other folks who knew the score,
Had told me how they fared.

The operation's easy.
No worries, it's a breeze.
Don't be afraid, I've been there,
And you'll come through with ease.

I believed them, yes I did,
But it's new ground for me.
I had to go, I knew I did,
So once more I could see.

I asked The Lord to come with me,
To give me the courage I'd need.
So the headaches would stop and I could see,
Together we'd do this deed.

It all went well, I was in and out.
It didn't take long at all.
The haze is gone, it's a bright new world,
There was really no reason to stall.

Enjoyed reading your work. It has great rhythm to it which makes a poem so much fun to read. I and my husband have both had cataract surgery which is a good thing to help with one of the problems of aging. Thanks for the visit to my page your comments are encouraging. Sara
