Oh, how I yearn for a normal day.
What ‘ere that might be?
Family, friends that I might say
A hug I have for thee.
But still we must bide the hour
To see better days ahead.
For it is not within our power
To solely halt this dread.
Sickness that has plagued our race
Is yet to be contained.
And each and all should surely face
What a scourge upon us rained.
Together we should do our best
To make safety a major task.
And yet to some it seems a test
To simply wear a mask!
To those who want to resist
The guidance of those who know,
This virus continues to persist
And the death rate does not slow.
If all would only do their part,
Perhaps losses would be less.
Heed the advice unto you heart
And ease your neighbor’s stress.
Come together, let’s fight the fight;
Make it safer for one and all.
Do what you know is only right;
Listen to the science call
A year has cost a heavy price
With the loss of not just few.
Think not once, nor even twice
What each of us could do.
A prayer be said for everyone
To step up to the call;
So you may know when it is done
That grief on us won’t fall.
Pray for those who’ve lost someone.
Pray to ease their saddened pain
And know that in another time
They’ll be with them again.
Reach out to those who’ve had some doubt
How serious this has been.
You just might make them come about
To bring normalcy back again.
