Poem Offering Comfort For Coronavirus Anxiety

Accept a challenge of togetherness in these anxious times! Here we sit, ripped from our daily norms, patterns, routines... thrust into a viral quarantine. We are separated yet also bonded, as is the unique case in times of world and community crisis. Perhaps each evening, for the smallest amount of time, we join together in our solitude - a moment to pause, to reflect, and yes, to smile.

Together In Solitude: The Challenge


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2020 with permission of the Author.

If you're anxious that all have been asked to stay home,
Take comfort in knowing you are not alone.

Tonight at 8, wherever you are,
Gaze up at the sky and pick out a star.

A moment alone or with people you love,
We all share the beautiful sky high above.

Take 30 seconds, be still in your mind;
Reflect on a happy, most memorable time.

The littlest things can give hearts a lift;
If we pause, take a moment, and cherish our gifts.
