“I sit alone in the dark. I hear voices around me. Sounds of movement. Sounds of life. I reach out. I can feel the smoothness. A plate. A meal.
Smells waft by my nose. Aromas of chicken. Sweet smells of pudding. Smells of life. What color is the food? Is the sun shining in? Are the faces around me young or old? So many questions. Questions I can’t answer. I can never answer. For I am blind, Have been blind for years.”
The anguish my mother faced For most of her life. Her sight stolen from her At a young age.
Loss of sight. Loss of colors. Loss of faces. Loss of memories.
