The Missing Specs...

We take our eyes for granted, until age or restriction, adds glasses as a cruel necessity...As if that isn't bad enough, I swear that they take on a life of their own every time I put them down...A spectacle wearer's heartfelt lament...

The Missing Specs...

Now where have I put my glasses down?
I swear they were just here...
I put them on to read this form,
and now they've disappeared!

I know they could not wander far,
but far enough it seems...
I swear I had them in my hand..
Now I wonder where I've been...?

So I retrace each every step...
Even looking in the loo..
But despite, my frantic searching,
they do not appear in view..

And just as I have given up,
as I toddle off to bed...
My glasses I locate at last...
Sitting there upon my head...

So now I've found my missing specs,
and chuckling as I go..
I take those darn, elusive things,
and pop them on my nose..

Where was I...? Ah, now I recall..
Leave my bed, so nice and warm
I grab my pen, then scratch my head..
Now where did I put that flaming form????

Ah, my dear friends...Age does not come alone.....

LOL, what can I say! Since cataract surgery last year to help reduce glaucoma pressure, I'm currently without glasses - but I still keep reaching for them

Oh my word, Songbird. You have put MY story into rhyme. That's me at least twice a day - and they're usually on the end of my nose!

Lol songbird, missing your humour on the other side:-( Surely someone could invent a device you could fit to specs that would beep if you pressed a remote...uh oh and lots of spare remotes for when you misplace the remote.....

hahahaha that was really interesting and fun reading!
hey am not mocking the problem u had in finding the glassess but ur style of writing made me smile :) so no offenses!!
My grandma has the same prob, I have suggested her alot of times to put a tracker on her glassess so that we can locate it easily!
thnx for the share, with old age comes alot more beautiful things and experiences than just problematic specs :)


thnx for sharing:)
