Waiting

I have always been wondering
how would it be when suddenly one morning
we realize COVID-19 is gone
what song shall we sing
as we dance, celebrating its leaving
and our coming out again?
Whom shall I first see
to visit, hug and kiss
telling them how I terribly missed them
in all those months of quarantine
how my heart deep within was longing
to hear them speaking and laughing, and crying.
It would be so joyous but also 
sorrowful and painful as we proceed next
to our loved one's final resting place
to offer flowers and tribute
telling them again 
how we love and sorely miss them.
While waiting for that new dawning
amid this prolonged quarantine
let's keep living one moment at a time
loving and caring, smiling and forgiving
everyone is awaiting something good
may still happen amid this COVID-19.

  1. After the pandemic Fr. Nick, i would very much like to back to the church again. I miss kneeling in front of the tabernacle and just telling God how is my life and just being grateful that i’m still alive, I can’t wait for the chance to see you too po :))
