Poem: ‘Thanksgiving 2020’ | Publish the newsletter

And looks like loneliness

will last until December.

A community crisis

Because of a virus

Limit large loving families to

to gather.

We used to worry about things like roads and the weather.

But we know we’re still loved

because our families cannot come and see us.

They worry about their affections

will lead to COVID infections

Because we are old and so

vulnerable populations,

we face inevitable isolation.

Once the turkey and the trimmings

gone, no generational photo can be taken.

But our minds will remember other times (unless we’re wrong)

past vacation

What visions will last –

From all of us every year one more year

Bigger and bolder new big and great-great babies

Dressed in our best, smiles all around

Warm and loving expressions abound

Thank god for our memories of times gone by

They give us hope for the future

as we try

Focus on gratitude for love, faith, family and friends

And thank our Lord for all of our endless blessings.

May God bless the victims of sickness and death,

Their families and friends who missed every last breath

Caring health workers and caregivers

Keep them nice and strong so that they don’t wobble or fall.

This Thanksgiving is Appreciation Time

Of all that is good in our big


This too will pass, and we will

to survive

With faith, hope and love kept alive.
