Its a mess out here
You’re sure to be safer inside the womb
Unfortunately you can’t stay forever there
So our home has now become our tomb.
We’re not allowed to go out
Nor can we even celebrate your arrival
Everything is just up and about
And yet everything depends on sole survival.
“Its a tough world you see”
Now those words make more sense
We’re battling a virus and we can’t even flee
We’re just caught up in this present tense.
How glad I am to have you in my arms
You make my family complete now
But I’m sorry I can’t show the world your charms
Neither can I show them how sweet art thou.
You might hear us say, “its not at all nice”
And also, “how long will all of this avail”
Just be rest assured we will suffice
For one another till our breath will prevail.
You will see all the good things soon
Its only a matter of precious time
The bad will have to give up its boon
Once everyone’s prayers are united in chime.
Someday you will hear about this year again
And maybe even learn more of it too
Only remember its never a bargain
And we did everything to make it nice to for you.
