My heart is heavy today,
but I cannot tell you why.
I took a drive to soothe my soul
but it did not make me fly.
The parking lots are empty
it is such an odd sight to see.
I just wish things were normal
for that is how I want it to be.
Everything seems odd, despite the sun is out.
Warm rays and spring bulbs should make me cheerful, yet
I turn around and hide my frown from all those who are about.
It seems like it should be a rainy day and wet.
For that is how my heart feels,
heavy and sodden with tears.
There is so much to be grateful for,
we must get past our fears.
Fears for the future,
that it will not be what we thought.
Fears for unsung accomplishments
and work that’s been all for naught.
Deep down I know it will be okay.
Resilience, with luck we all have.
Adapting to a new reality,
when done, will be our salve.
My heart feels lighter now,
writing does that for me.
I hope you can find some relief
when you feel similarly.
