Les Miserables- “One More Day.”


I dreamed a dream in time goes by

When life returns to more forgiving

I dreamed that masks were out of sight

Except on Halloween with candy giving.

When we were young and unafraid

When hugging Grandpa posed no limits

Our days galore of fun and games

Looking both ways before we crossed our aim.

But the virus came along 

The impact soft as thunder,

As our world fell apart

And our days left without their wonder.

We lived too long while stuck inside

Our hopes and prayers put on back burners,

It wasn’t gone as autumn came.

With dreams of life returning.

We slashed our plans to party on

Weddings and Bar Mitzvah’s without the music.

We had a dream of brides in white 

Children praying at the bema

And still we dream our life will be 

Pulling our chairs up to the table.

We will share a cup or two 

A little Nova, an everything bagel

The days are growing longer 

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow

We’ll grab a moment to reflect

And know we emerged so much stronger.

Double vaxxed now filled with hope

Six feet apart has gotten closer

Touching elbows and hugging shoulders.

While we kneel and pray for strength

Deep breaths while chanting prayers

“When we were young and unafraid

There was no ransom to paid.

But the tigers came at night with their voices soft as thunder.”

So for today we will rise above the cloud

Shrouding our better judgement.

We will open up our minds and dream that peace is on its way.
