My parents have decided to self-isolate and so for the first time I am not spending Mother’s Day with my mum. Who knows if we’ll be back together in time for Father’s Day?!
Normally I see my mum every day as they live so close; it has been really odd not being able to pop round or hear her knock at our door. I know it is only temporary but my heart is a little bit broken.
Your present’s sat here waiting,
The card is here too.
The only thing that’s missing
Is my wonderful mum: YOU!
I know we need to keep you safe,
Locked away inside
But Mother’s Day without you
Is a day I can’t abide.
I know I am so lucky
To have you living near
But the door that’s stood between us
Is a barrier of fear.
This virus will not beat us
Our nation will stand with pride
This measure is only short term:
Soon I’ll be back by your side.
