Families adjust to a new kind of living.
Games and puzzles, and fearless singing.
New passions arise from a change in routine,
As we all get slap-happy in quarantine.
Days linger on with no end in sight,
All that’s improving is our appetite!
As others safeguard our lives…
First responders’ act without delay,
A Corona imposter, they surely must slay.
Doctors and nurses check symptoms and tests.
Our heroes in battle strive to be best.
Food workers step up defending our meals,
They all risk their lives so we can be healed.
As we secure our foundations…
When we feel distraught and ready to quit,
As parents and spouses, we’re just so unfit.
Teachers are we, when never before,
Guide our kids to help their grades soar.
Is there a cure when we feel so tired?
Yes, God can HUG us… no distance required.
As we preserve our nation…
Moving out of our comfort zone
When the world faces the unknown.
Strength, and a sacrificial heart
Creates harmony when surviving apart.
Countries once distant grow closer instead,
Togetherness breeds as the virus is spread
As God watches over us…
Blessed are those who honor His Word,
For mysteries abound in what they have heard.
To be humble, and pray and seek His face,
Will allow us “together” to run this race.
May His wings be a shield to cover your fears,
His feathers far-reaching to soften your tears.
