Insomnia

As I lie down to sleep
I try not to weep
Tears come in a sweep
As I try to sleep

The days are long
The nights are longer
We live in isolation
An aging generation

COVID the creep
Touched lives so deep
Left wounds to tend
And lives to mend

Alone with memories to ponder
Families away far yonder
Friends we cannot visit
Life became so timid

I close my eyes to pray
Lord my life to keep
My life to live by your will
A mask to wear by ruler’s will

As I awake
A breath I take
I face the day
God, lead the way
