I woke up old and all alone
Feeling sorry for myself.
And then I turned on my TV
And realized I am blessed.
People in the nursing homes
Cannot leave their rooms.
Loved ones can no longer visit
All they know is gloom.
I am 85 with a loving family
I have food upon my table
If I want to go out and walk
Thanks to God I am still able.
People in New York City
Are not allowed to go outside
The city once was a place of happiness
Is now about the people who have died.
And I looked at the Foodbank lines
Cars as far as you can see
I know but for the grace of God
In that line could be me.
They sit in the line for hours
Their family needs food no doubt
When they finally get to end of the line
Supplies have just ran out.
We are not to hug our loved ones
Very dangerous we are told
We have other ways to show our love
And still protect the sick and old.
Your family knows you love them
And they are forever in your heart
Show them how much you really care
By distancing 6 feet apart.
Small sacrifices seem a bit tedious
Only God knows what lies ahead
Alabama could be like New York
If the virus continues to spread.
Some people get very sick
While others may never know
They can be infecting people
Symptoms they never know.
Alabama continues to distance
And let’s do our very best
So we’ll never hear the word “Positive”
If we take the Covid-19 test.
