Burying 2020

Burying 2020

A Poem by Gee
"

Good riddance

"
We'll gather by your open grave
as bells echo out loud,
no tears or flowers be offered up
to fall upon your shroud.
For you my friend will not be missed
your leaving will be cheered,
though your memory will linger on
in most minds ever seared.
But hope comes with your burying,
a light at tunnels end,
with smiles replacing misery
as the world begins to mend...

Happy New year folks :))

We are already in March and the ghosts of 2020 are still very much around maybe we need to chase them away. How is 2021 treating you so far

Missed this one Gee. I have to say most people I know were glad to see the back of 2020. Most of us didn't know that we were going to get another dose in 2021. Thank goodness there is light now at the end of the tunnel. Carefully does it though.

Yeah, 2020 should be erased, and never mentioned. Unfortunately a hundred thousand families have it ingrained now. Let's hope 2021 is this end of the deaths.

Yes and amen. This year deserves no epitaph. But the poem speaks for it - and resonates

Hopefully it will all soon be a socially distant memory. Great job.

The scars are deep - and as you poetically write - 2020 will NOT be seen as a pleasant one! Hopefully, 2021 will eventually bring healing... :-) Great share!

Thank you sir
You're absolutely right. I don't think there are many people in the world who were sad to say goodbye to 2020. Your poem expressed this really nicely, and looks positively on to 2021. Happy New Year to you too! Laura.
