Moments

Moments of connection were so precious and effort was made with a simple smile in unexpected places and from people you didn't expect the connection and feeling of we were all in this together was unique and quite special.

These moments creating beauty
Magic moments of love and unity
cherish these
Hold on tight
a desire for a lifetime
To last It might!

Forevermore
least we try
make it work
We can
Yes We care
for one another
we give
Love
And we live for each other
give love
a chance

Just Care enough today

To share
and
Still be doing this if we dare
To be brave
A smile
whilst we be safe
We give

We Tap elbows
Blow air
kisses
Send hugs
Over Skype
FaceTime
Be there

We
are Sending
messages

Saving each others lives in isolation
love’s connection
simplicity brings
Us closer still

Together

Keep doing
What we’re doing
Every today
Tomorrow
A lifetime ……
