When can we take our first baby steps
in this upside-down world, empty streets.
We may feel exposed with no mask to protect
new tentative smiles, clarity of speech.
Our hugs will surely bring forth tears of joy,
lips will meet softly on that first kiss
as long-time lovers feel oddly coy.
Dining out–magical–something we’ve missed.
Sounds of laughter, children playing games,
friends visiting, sharing a dinner.
Buds of color pop, Spring soon to reign.
Local shops bustle with renewed vim and vigor.
Let us hold hands when this darkness ends,
and seek new beginnings, from the ashes ascend.
