Current Events Poem

Changes During The Pandemic

We watched our only granddaughter daily while her parents were at work from the age of 2 months until March 11, 2020. We are a bit older, so it was no longer safe for us to babysit during the 2020 pandemic. I could only think how confusing it must be for this little 3-year-old child to grasp. It was so distressing that I wrote this poem for her. I am hoping the children will not be totally traumatized by these events as they grow up. I want them to be hopeful of the future and put this behind them

What Will You Remember?

©

Published: April 13, 2021

What will you remember
of the days we could not play?
When things were very different
from just the other day.
We had to stay apart.
It was all that we could do.
There was no other way
to help the world get through.

What will you remember
of the days we could not play?
Will you always please remember
we wished it all away.
It must have been confusing
with people wearing masks.
We washed and scrubbed our hands
after very simple tasks.

One day the schools are open.
The next day they are not.
Marks and lines are on the floors
to stand on your own spot.

What will you remember
of the days we could not play?
I hope you will remember
it would not always be that way.

Love,
Grandma March 2020
