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!
