Three Steps to Heaven – In Our Place

 

There are only three steps to heaven

sang Eddie Cochran long ago

when we were young

 

We are now only

a few steps away

to having contact and touch

 

What are your 3 steps

to living again

in our post Covid world

 

A year since lockdown began

I have my own three

wishes and hopes

 

None of these on Zoom

or the phone

all face to face

 

Seeing my family

smiling with joy

and hugging them

 

Meeting my friends

for a coffee or a brew

dinner with a glass of wine

 

Chattering and smiling

no masks

seeing the smiles

 

Family and friends

are the threads running

seamlessly through our lives

 

Won’t it be wonderful

to have back

those threads

 

Be with those we love

and our dearest friends

Again

 

As the crocuses sprout

and new life begins

hope springs

In Our Place

 

Pauline Smith
