~ Colours in My Eyes ~

If I should go blind will I still remember
the colours of the world I have seen?
Will my eyes become the colours reflecting my memory;
reds and yellows blues and green?

Will there be magentas and violets and ochre?
Will there be azure, aqua, olive and tan?
As the colours gradually fade from my memory
will you not see them in my eyes again?

Will the freshness of life be visible still?
The fun of pink and orange and lime
The warmth of vermilion buttercup and lemon
The mellowness of garnet and wine

So which would be last that will fade from my eyes?
The brilliance of a sunrise or dark skies of night?
Shall the blue of the water and sky shine on?
Or will it be the calm cool emerald of life?

Artist's Description

I was trapped in this gaze posted by Alf Caruana and the the thought “What happens to your eyes when you go blind?” crossed my mind then these words filled my head

Enjoy! ♥
