In honor to those who lost the battle

The world must have heard your pleas
"Mom, dad don't go please?
The world must have heard.ypur sighs
"Oh, what a long day"


The unceasing toil, the never ending burning of midnight's oil
The heavy traffic, the jam-packed stadium
Churches filled with Hallelujah
All gone now, people clustered in their homes
Thinking of things how to get by the day
Thinking of ways how to overcome this deadly boredom
That starts to eat away the essence of living

The children are happy, they get to see mom and dad everyday
They don't see the frantic ways to start a day
They witness that mom and dad start to linger in bed
Not rushing onward to go to work

There is goodness in all these
The skies are clear, the evenings are quite
The people start to see their neighbors
People start to pray in the nooks of their homes
Above all, people's habit of working overload is broken

Because of you, you came to our life unwanted
Because of you, you, you
The Unseen, you move in mysterious ways...

      You were able to convey the feelings of many in your poetic prose. We are paying attention to the experts and wearing masks when out and about. I am basically a homebody so staying home is not unusual for me.

      Loved your reflections about the virus. Truth be told, my life has not changed that much. I was always a recluse anyway, I work from home, and my wife and I are healthy.
