Letter: A poem for the times

We live in a scary world today

We live in a scary world today,

It’s different than before.

No more hugs or kissing,

Our happiness gone away

Like never before.

The virus has taken our

Loved ones away.

Families suffering

Like never before.

The fear of the unknown

Has arrived

The worry of what will happen

Tomorrow to you and me.

Coronavirus on our minds,

Coronavirus everywhere.

Our lives in danger,

Like never before.

We practice social distancing

Every day to keep the virus

At bay as we shop in different ways.

We’re asked to stay at home,

Like never before.

When will this,

Virus ever go away?

But I promise

I’ll love and pray 

For everyone suffering,

Every day.
