Well that is the usual way it goes
Or perhaps the workings of death,
But in some dreadful circumstances
Other causes will stop your breath.
And we have such a dire situation now
With a horrific epidemic of viral strain,
Sweeping worldwide across the globe
That may never be the same again.
Because this is an invisible killer
And cannot be seen, felt or disturbed,
When it spreads from person to person
Especially when gathered like a herd,
That we humans mostly like to do
As we have a companionship need.
But danerously for us all now,
This the Coronavirus will feed.
Therefore I got a surreal experience
Quite emotional, like a form of grief.
As one evening on my allowed walk
The deafening silence beggared belief,
Of events in such a very short time
Having everyone in a panicking quake,
Which brought about the eerie quiet
A world destroying bomb would make.
There was no noise of children playing,
Music was not heard, or any traffic hum,
Revealing petrified people are staying in
So to a creeping virus won’t succumb.
The shrieking wind shook off the hand
Desperately clinging to the rail,
And threatened to flatten him
For fighting was to no avail,
As weakened frame and battered mind
Could offer no more defence,
Against the elements bombardment
So now resistance made no sense.
But a defiant spark was remaining
While a strong will said hold on,
And struggle to the bitter end
When all hope has finally gone.
Because man has a deep inner will
That can achieve huge success,
When all has appeared hopeless
And seemed an impossible mess.
But what is it that drives us on
Like the intrepid case as above?
Well I believe it is our fine spirit
And a considered belief that love
Can help us overcome diversity
And everything that life can throw.
But obviously there are times
When we just have to let go.
So meanwhile we can take a lead
From courageous exploring heroes,
Who forged new paths and discoveries
So that everywhere man now goes,
He has the lessons on fortitude
Taught by Trojans from the past,
Who used love and determination
To teach how to make it last.

Ease of Entry
When you apply your magic touch
You take my breath away,
And take me to loves deep feelings
That don’t need shades of grey.
For it’s as if you have ease of entry
To me, without need of a key.
Though that’s no great mystery,
Just your unique chemistry.
So touch away sweet lady
For you have an open goal,
And an unobstructed free way
Straight into my very soul.
Though I don’t think I would protest
Even if I possibly could,
Because I’m certain that no-one
Can ever be so very good
As you are, when with me,
In all our glorious connections.
For no architect of life
Could ever plan such erections,
As our love and life together
That cannot be pulled apart.
So we will travel roads together
Just living off one heart.
Now I know that there are doubters,
Maybe jealous of our ecstasy.
But they’ve probably never felt
Just what you do for me,
Or perhaps I do for you too.
If all I see in your release,
Causes such deep sensations
To give us inner peace.
All done then and please all take great care as The Journey Continues HOPEFULLY…
