This last year- it’s hard to see, God sent blessings for you and me,
Lockdowns come and Lockdowns go – in one whole year what is to show?
Firstly, worship not to share, no socialising seemed unfair.
One walk a day was no task – but how to smile behind a mask?
We looked to find a new way, and re-learnt caring every day.
For me Spring was hard to take – scones and cakes I started to bake!
Summer came, the sun was out, there was much more to shout about!
God’s blessings came all the time – the little things that showed a sign,
Kindnesses that people did – the talents shown that had been hid.
Autumn, then I went on line – at first a nightmare, then in time –
Through help from friends, phone calls too – now joined Facebook groups (a few),
I’m happy now I’ve joined zoom, my spiritual life I hope will bloom.
I seem to pray more each day, and seek forgiveness come what may.
Waiting with others dusk and dawn, for a new normal to be born.
