A poem

bare hospital walls

no flowers or letters allowed.

stillness and remdesivir

drips, drips, drips

-

you’re a survivor.

i know you’re strong. you can beat the

virus winding itself

through your lungs.

-

we still have films to

watch, songs to sing to, cities and

museums to explore

just come back.

-

i forgive you for

everything. just walk out of that

hospital room again

i love you.

My mother was 58 years old and my father was 63 years old when they both overcame Covid-19. I’ll be forever proud of them for fighting hard and recovering well, as well as thankful that they’re still here with me today.

Sometimes I read, and sometimes I write. Sometimes I ask questions, and hope to bring the answers to light. Anyway, thanks for stopping by!
