Coronavirus Poem

The scientists predict
and science says wait.
So in the hands of science
we place our fate.
But I know what
I would rather do.
Trust in You my God
and follow You.
I’ll greet others with a smile
and not with a touch.
Avoiding the crowds
and not go out too much.
…… and as the world social distances itself
and covers its face;
You will hold me close
in Your loving embrace.
I have food in the fridge
and upon each shelf
for I’m being advised
to isolate myself.
I’m unsure whether I’ll see these
twelve weeks through
or will walk through the
Vale of Death with You.
But, dear Lord, whatever
the outcome will be
I know that You will stay
very close to me.
