Before The Virus Came Along

Before the virus came along
Life was fast and ruthless
And the world spun like a wheel
Going round.

Before the virus came along
People were busy and breathless
Their lives lacked simple things
Like time.

When the virus came along
The wheel was forced to brake
Momentum lost its power
And stopped.

And people came to see
That they were not the drivers
That bigger wheels were turning
Unseen.

When the virus left again
The world was green and breathing
The rested people knew
What mattered.

Now the memory is just that
Time is much the healer
But something lingered longer
And stayed.

The virus shaped the world
And made the people grateful
For peace and touch and freedom
Again.
