When the white coat gently whispered
"You'll slowly lose your sight"
I felt the darkest night press in.
As clear turned to teary blur,
I wondered when the light
in my eye would no longer shine?
My life flashed before me
and memory brought the thought,
"To this world you entered
in without sight to see...
to see the One who granted
all this beauty and love for you.
To your eye, the light of the sun
may grow dim,
but the Light of Him who loves you
will shine through all eternity,
allowing you to see more,
deeper, than you ever did before.
