ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER
It seems like an eternity since freedom has been stilled,
When those who drove to work each day, and had their pockets filled,
Though time surrenders to the will of germs from far away,
We listen to the instructions, and in our homes we stay.
When will this torment end, we ask, when will our lives return,
We’re longing to hug each other and wanderlust does burn,
It’s only been three weeks, you say, it seems so much longer,
But character and patience grow making us much stronger.
We’re not alone though it may seem, our walls are closing in,
Our eyes are being tested now, the screen time just might win,
But if we use the time we have to nurture and to love,
Our God will be right at our side, with blessings from above.
