It’s eye health week this week. SVI’s women’s group has put together a poem to highlight the importance of looking after your eyes. We considered all the things we miss when we can’t see.
Rainbows, faces, leaves on trees,
Stars in the sky and the sun on the seas.
Our eyes are the windows to the world that we see,
You would miss all these things if you don’t take care of me.
Reflections in windows and mirrors don’t lie,
Clouds in the sky when the wind rushes by,
Colours, words, photos and books
Memories are in me if you just look
Blue, brown, grey and green
Amber, hazel, and in between
Look after yourself and you will see
Exercise, eat well and you’ll look after me
