Humorous Poem

My husband had the cataracts removed from his eyes. It was then that I got to thinking about how well he would see after the operation and more important, would he like what he'd see?

After The Operation

© Barbara Turner
So now he has had his eyes done,
and at last he can see,

but I was a bit worried,
what would he think of me?

You see, he hadn't seen me,
out of two good eyes,

would I be a total shock,
or a nice surprise?

He said "my God, you are almost grey,
you're eyes are much too small,

you are old and fat and ugly,
I'm not impressed at all"

But as I sat there crying,
I suddenly noticed that---

he wasn't looking my way,
but talking to the cat!!

so yes I think he's very pleased
with all that he can see

He thinks every thing is lovely,
and that includes me!!
