Love and Joy

some are leaping about for sheer joy
others just for the exercise
these are the ones who took precautions
avidly washing their hands
and wearing their masks
they limited their activities
for they loved and honoured their elders

full of respect, love and kind concern
knowing others lives were dependent
upon them fulfilling these basic requirements
this kindness has given them added buoyancy
they feel so much lighter and full of love
those elders in return are now sharing
their resources and their homes

for community is what it’s all about
interdependence crucial without a doubt
when we care for others kindness is repaid
so let’s each step up and improve the grade
for when we open our hearts
only goodness will impart
and life becomes so much brighter!
