If I had one wish it would be,

That the world could now be Covid free,

That families could again be together,

Enjoy a hug, and meet untethered.

Weddings and parties could go ahead,

So many couples still wait to be wed.

Let the corks pop and celebrations begin,

We’ll appreciate everything we’ve worked hard to win.

Our freedom to travel and mingle again.

Enjoy our pastimes with family and friends,

Get back to work and the classroom,

Life will be swept clean with a new broom.

This is my dream and it will come true,

But, of course, we’ll never forget all the lives gone that we do regret.

It won’t be long, so stay upbeat.

Until that wonderful day when we can finally meet.
