As I have plenty of time, I am going to put my thoughts in rhyme
I am seventy plus and never before, have I been stopped from seeing those I adore
It seems like the world is now standing still,and we’ve all been given a slow down pill
This virus has taken over the world and good things and bad have been unfurled.
Not allowed out except to buy food, can walk the dog if you’re in the mood
Go to the chemist, wear gloves and mask, dont go near people and try to walk fast
Streets are deserted, no sound to be heard, sometime a car, perhaps the sound of a bird
No rides in the car with my hubby at all, if I had kids home I would go up the wall.
The loss of lives has been very sad, not saying goodbye, one could go raving mad
The good things have been the patience of folk, who sometimes lighten the mood with a joke
They dance and they sing, they exercise too, and put it on screen so we can all view
They boost us all up, so we follow their lead. if we all stay positive we can succeed
The hospital staff, doctors and nurses, they make us all dig into our purses
We give what we can so equipment is there, to help save lives and show that we care
The amazing people who with no delay, do vital work day after day.
We applaud them and thank them, they have family too
But they carry on with the great work they do
When this is over, we hope one day soon – maybe before we all go to the moon
We will stand close together, no more far away
Our hair will be coloured and no longer grey
For we will have survived, let’s send thanks above
For being again with those that we love
