A REMARKABLE school boy who communicated poems, stories and songs by blinking has died at the age of 15.
Adam Bojelian, of Bilbrough, near York, won a string of national awards for his poetry and even wrote a song which reached number two in the iTunes children’s music chart.
As he suffered from very severe epilepsy and cerebral palsy as well as other medical problems, Adam's only movement came from his eyes and head.
The Tadcaster Grammar School pupil composed his work through a process of looking at letters and lists and blinking, or via specialist computer software.
His mum Zoe announced he had passed away on Tuesday by posting a photo on Twitter with the hashtag #braveadam and the caption "Good night sweet Prince and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."
Hundreds of people have posted tributes on Twitter, which Adam frequently used to communicate.
Zoe told The Press: "All the messages of support, and reading what a huge impact Adam had, is a real comfort to my husband Paul and I in our total devastation at losing Adam."
Adam won a Brit Writers' Award and a Blue Peter Gold Badge for his poetry and last year won a Young Epilepsy Champion Award.
In 2012, he wrote a Christmas song which attracted backing from Hollywood actor Ewan McGregor.
His ditty, called the Christmas Gibbons, tells the story of how Santa only manages to deliver his presents in one night because he has an army of monkeys to help him out.
The song came about as Adam was given the chance to have a wish granted and, while most children ask for a trip to Disneyland, he asked to have a poem made into a song.
He worked with a Hollywood music composer, Tom Harrison, to compose the song for charity.
Adam wrote about what makes good hospital care in his blog, Blink of an Eye, which was read at several NHS conferences and picked up by NHS England.
Adam had daily seizures and spent a lot of time in hospital. He had recently moved with his parents to Bilbrough.
A celebration of Adam's life is due to be held in York on April 11 with further details expected to be announced on Twitter @adsthepoet.
