The Year of Covid

The year was 2020, a new decade was born

We still had our heroes, those in uniform

As the winter started soon to turn itself into the Spring

How were we to know corona virus was a thing

Some became concerned and others just dismissed

Don’t shake your daddy’s hand, and grandma don’t you kiss

The first death came upon us and a widow shed a tear

We became a country full of undenying fear

Days turned into weeks as more had fallen down

What had come upon us from this Wuhan China town

What were we to do but lock ourselves inside

We had to mitigate, we had to break the tide

We rolled up our sidewalks and shut ourselves inside

Mitigation was the word we spoke to all that would abide

No longer could we go out to eat, and shopping puts us in danger

We dare not ever chance today, to shake the hands of a stranger

So while I know it’s scary, and so many just don’t understand

How could the USA allow a virus to ravage our land

Expectation of all the experts say thousands of us will die

When will it be over, how many more tears must we cry

While this is a different time for all, we must understand a new norm

That the real heroes of today wear a different uniform

A nurse in scrubs, a white coated doctor, a grocer with a smock

A truck driver in his rugged jeans, a farmer gathering his crops

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and most we see each day

They are the essential ones, and for these I pray

What courage they have as they risk their health for you

Many of you are in this group and to all I say thank you

We will overcome, and life’s engine will start again

So take the time to love your neighbor, spend precious time with friends

And never believe that the only heroes are the traditional ones we know

There are heroes everywhere no matter where we go

Thank you heroes for all you do,

we will all say a prayer for you
