To all people working together to fight this battle of COVID-19 – thank you for your time, commitment, energy, dedication and professionalism during this time of crises. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Easter.
I wrote the following poem Pandemic 2020 giving hope in this challenging times.
There is no welcome for you
to knock on the door of our home,
yet you pervade like darkness of night
creating a shadow over our land.
You are like the unwelcome thief,
who uses the dark of night
stealing what is not theirs to take.
You are no knight
but your weapon is swift,
creating sickness and suffering,
your sword the final sting
The cries of our people can be heard across the land,
the tears of a mother’s grief can never be wiped away,
even children weep for the loss of grandparents.
In love we keep distance longing for a hug,
the streets are empty,
playgrounds are silent,
funeral homes full, but no wake allowed.
You will not destroy our love,
you will not destroy our faith,
our destiny is one of survival,
we are all in this together.
Brothers and sisters stand apart, together,
Isolation, in community,
the battle will be fought with courage and strength,
Victory will be ours.
