‘My Thoughts Today’ by Celia Murphy


My Thoughts Today

Today is different,

life has changed.

The birds are singing louder.

There are no cars passing.

The school yards are silent.

A world of no hugs.

A world of no touch.

To me it’s lonely;

today is hard,

I miss my family.

My little grandchildren,

their beautiful smiles.

The love they have to give and share.

This is a time

we will never forget.

It is tasteless, odourless.

Life without salt,

or sauce.

We will celebrate again.

Until then, let us share

all the love within our hearts.
