Eyes
Cloudy eyes
Eyes that see through frosted glass
Cataracts that blur and dim

Mercy
A healing ship
Sent abroad from shore to shore
Surgeons with skill and care

Gran
Almost blind
A walking stick and outstretched hands
Hope in leaps and bounds

Ask
Can this help
Freely given come and take
Relief that grows and swells

Hands
A gentle touch
Tears that swim on chocolate skin
Belief that Gran will see

Sleep
Calmly quiet
Surgeons snip and cut and trim
A lens thatís new and clear

Patch
A dark cover
Peace as eyes relax and heal
A shout of joy and sight

Light
Brightly clear
Crisp contrasts of day and night
An eye thatís sharp and whole

Colour
Bursting forth
Rainbows arching, dancing free
A world that's fresh and new

Thanks
Fervent words
Grateful hearts extend their love
A smile of victory

Dance
Spinning around
Exuberant excess of pleasure
A shout of praise to God

Grace
Amazing grace
She once was blind
But now can see
