Isolation

I’ve been isolated during a pandemic for 2 months. I miss my grandchildren. It’s been especially hard being home alone every day with my thoughts. I see you everywhere lately. I remember days of you visiting me as if no time has passed. The summer is upon us once again and with each change of season again the loss is brightened . I can hear you say….”mom what are you doing today. Wanna hang out.”

Written by Dave Matthews

Singing from the windows
shadow on the wall, the way they dance
not much of nothing
and look at this fire burning bright

Look at how the children play
none of us know what’s to come tomorrow
but I’m not going out today
so dance with me like the time we’ve got is borrowed

Singing from the windows
sirens in the dark, where are you going?
pretend that it’s nothing
but look at this fire burning wild

Well this is how we keep holding on
every day, all day long
but sometimes things just fall apart
no matter how you try, they won’t stop

Singing from the windows
something outside and I don’t know

When the storm is over
and picking up the pieces of everyday
memories in picture frames
trying to put the inside out and the outside in

Singing from the windows
walking down the hall, nowhere to go
(it’d) be good to see you, but
suppose when it’s all said and done

This is how we keep holding on
all the days, all day long
but sometimes things just fall apart
no matter how we try, they can’t stop
