Tsunami

Grandparents being taken
without a chance to say goodbye,
grandchildren left devastated
and asking for the reason why.

No final embrace as a stranger
stands by their side,
a stranger battling heroically
to try and turn back this tide.

A tsunami of death
is heading our way,
as brave heroes fight the surge
the rest of us pray.

Grandparents being buried
without their loved ones near,
grandchildren watch from a distance
their eyes filled with tears.

  1. Here in the Detroit. People dying alone. Not enough care givers. Poor children are learning hard lessons. No school, can’t see their grandparent and can’t see their friends. Stay in yard life. Prison for the children and the poor grandparent. Separated by this coronaviras. I pray for better days.
