Christmas in the COVID Era

May this Christmas bring hope to the heart.
Not just for one, but for all.
And though we'll spend Christmas apart...
Send a card, give a gift, make a call.

May this Christmas bring peace to the world.
Peace that we have never known.
For some, a second chance at life.
For others, a fresh new dawn.

May this Christmas bring love to my heart,
More appreciation too,
For kinfolk, friends and fellowmen,
For all that we've been through.

So celebrate with gratitude,
No hang-ups, and no regrets
As we must sail life's roughest seas -
A maze most difficult yet.
