Poor Eyesight

Have you ever woke up in a rush, And realized you couldn’t see. You look in your usual spots, And think where could they be? I always put them right here, But where did I place them last night. All I know is that it’s hard to find, A pair of glasses with poor eyesight. I have searched my entire room, And my glasses are gone. Now my cluttered room is a mess, I must have slept with them on. You throw stuff around and ransack Possible locations in your head. Then like nothing ever happened, There they are right under the bed.

It is true, glasses are hard to find with poor eyesight. I stepped on a pair of mine while looking for them.

My mom lost her glasses this morning. I found them under the bed. Thanks for the advice of where you found yours in this poem. Love Elizabeth

I lose my contacts and glasses all the time. So reading this really relates to me.

Great poem! My daughter's glasses once disappeared in the middle of the night. Turned out the cat had stolen them and mixed them up in the covers on my bed. It was so funny when we realized what had happened.

Good to hear from you Paul, or is it Raul? Good write, very practical and very human. Makes one feel good to know company, especially old, forgetful people like myself. Love, daver

A very amusing and clever write. I enjoyed it very much, although I too have been frantic looking for my glasses. Respectfully, Tom
