Musings from a hopeful, locked down traveler!
I miss the sun on my face,
I miss being able to travel to a far away place.
I miss the feel of sand beneath my toes,
I miss being able to walk through a garden to smell a rose.
I miss feeling the salty wind in my hair,
Aren’t we all wondering how this is all a bit unfair.
It’s a strange, weird world we are living in now,
Far away from our normal and how.
Staying at home is what we must do,
Giving us a chance to ponder about the life we all knew.
We don’t know when this is all going away,
When on a beach somewhere I will be able to lay.
As we navigate through times unknown,
Here's hoping for kindness, compassion and strength.
I hope the lessons we take away,
They would be of what was really important.
Hope and faith is what is keeping us going,
Praying for a better world with positive energies flowing.
Simple pleasures are what we miss the most,
Hugs and kisses, friends and family that we must from now on forever hold close.
