Weeks slip by

By Christine Miskonoodinkwe Smith

Weeks have slipped by
Barely any words exchanged

A text here and there,
Or a quick FaceTime call
Is not the same

I miss everyone
This pandemic
Has taken away a closeness
I have always felt
With all my relations

Weeks have gone by
Barely any words exchanged

I miss the words, the hugs
And just seeing people in person

This pandemic
Has taught me

Never take things
In life
For granted

Try to bury the words
That have hurt
And reach out

And no matter
How much time passes

Always remember
Contact is necessary

We all need to reconnect
In good ways
That will only nurture us
But nurture those
Who are hurting the most

And try to hide
From it all
