For those of us thinking about the next step out of lockdown …..
Time has settled round us –
Yet drifted like a stream
That slowly meanders,
And passes us unseen.
A day is a year, a year is a day
When life is put on hold,
Too many separations and longings,
Too many stories left untold.
But don’t forget to greet the sun,
For it will always rise
Like a beacon, for us waking
To these uncertain skies.
So the blackbird sings louder,
As if with a message in his song –
We cannot stop the summer
Tho’ the winter has been long.
Yes it’s going to be a new day,
But the memories we will keep
Of a time that brought a new way,
To live, and love, and weep.
