Never Will Again

Thought I’d try my hand at song writing….

Words are what we have.

A blessing and a curse.

Oh the things we took for granted.

We can’t be together.

It’s a risky proposition.

This isolation can be so lonely.


When this is over,

I’ll never miss a chance.

For an embrace or a dance.

When this is over, a new world

we will embrace.

Never take for granted again

seeing your smiling face.

What I’d give to go back.

Stop this nightmare before it began.

Things we took for granted-we never will again.

Days drag on so slowly.

Finding things to pass the time.

Doing all I can to avoid reality.

Just weeks ago, we were going

about our lives like normal.

Who knew it would all come crashing down?


Quarantine the news.

I don’t want to see it anymore.

What I want is for things to be as they were before.

Hanging in there. Doing the best we can.

Praying for a resolution.

Oh God please grant us mercy.

  1. The news has been screwed up for a LONG time, Laura. This whole quarantine has just brought it to everyone’s attention more clearly.

    Just remember things are not as bad as the news is portraying it (that doesn’t get ratings). Serious yes, dire no. This too shall pass as well. We will all be back to a relatively normal life, with the added benefit (at least in the short term) of remembering to appreciate the little things in life.
