Your beautifully penned poem brought tears to my eyes.
This is a very heartfelt and touching free verse you have penned.
We are living in troublesome times, it appears all will get worse before it gets better. This is evident in how the men and women who lived in nursing and veteran homes were treated. So many lives have been lost needlessly.
My son contacted the virus. I witnessed what he had to go through just to get tested. After the third trip to the ER with all the symptoms, he was still sent back home without being tested or treated. My son has underlining heath issues, but by God's grace and mercy and many prayers going upon his behalf, my son is doing well.
I can only imagine what the men and women in the nursing homes had to endure.
I appreciate your comments in the author's notes and totally agree with you, the loss of one soul is one too many.
May God continue to bless you and keep you and your family in HIs loving care. Thanks so much for sharing this heartfelt post.
