"I Do Believe"

Even though the pandemic has spread throughout the world
and racial equality has spread unrest
I look up towards the Heavens
for I am truly blessed.
 
Now for sure I have health problems
as most can readily see
yet if I look around a bit
there are many with more than me.
 
I have deep faith that keeps me strong
and flower gardens too
the lilies are blooming everywhere
creating a beautiful view.
 
Yes nature is my comfort zone
which all of us do need
I've many lovely song birds
and squirrels that I feed.
 
We are all in this together
a fact we should understand
show love and true compassion
when holding out your hand!
