Over 10,000

Last night I couldn’t sleep

Over 10,000 - sleep is eternal!

Today I awoke - another day to keep

Over 10,000 -day forever nocturnal

Today I can breathe spring air

Over 10,000 have drawn their last

Today I can stay home in my chair

Over 10,000 - their life is past

Today I am alive

Over 10,000 have died

Today I’m staying home to survive

Over 10,000 lost their lives

Today I stood and sighed

Over 10,000 lives to mourn

Today I sat and cried

Over 10,000 won’t see a new dawn

What has this virus done?

Over 10,000 families left raw

When will this virus be gone?

Over 10,000 life’s are no more!
