Life Through Sight - Poem by Melissa Furey

Opening our eyes Is the first thing we do when we enter the world
We see the faces of our parents happy to see the baby boy or girl
we then move to the next stage which Is starting to crawl
we use our sight to see but we end up facing a wall

We then start to talk
and then eventually walk
As we grow older we start of loving our mum and dads
but with the teenage years we get angry and mad

But during thoes times we have the heartache
we then learn from the mistakes
we use our sight to find the person we love
live isn't easy but we finally find someone who always understood

on the day we walk down the Aisle
We use our eyes to capture the moment they smile
The next moment inlife is gaining weight and having pain
but seeing that little baby you would happily go through again

We relive the firsts but this time through our own eyes
we see them smile and how they get surprised
we smile as we watch them grow
We cry our tears as we watch our parents go

We watch the kids leave school and have kids of there own
we say goodbye to our partner and live alone
the last thing that we do is look around the room
we take one last look and taking our final breath is the last thing we do
