dusk arising

come the Covid day



 

Now there are places
we can no longer be
and we will know faces
no longer seen.


On a day we have chosen
we shall enter the streets,
grasping our memories,
displaying our grief.


Revering the heroes
who gave of their life
to fight that good fight,
that we may survive.

      More than that I believe. For as long as I can remember they have been bashed around like a tennis ball when it comes to their pay bargaining. After covid the economy will be in a mess so it may not happen immediately but let us develop a long memory of our national debt to them.

      I am with you all the way dusk. They are more than mere heroes - never forget them.

      • dusk arising

        Yes we must have a national day for them.

        A fine tribute dusk - for the living and the departed.

        • dusk arising

          Yes Orchidee, remember them in your prayers.

          So meaningful your words at this time of troubles not seen before and heartfelt the reference you make to the heroes we may never meet but who will live in our memory. Putting this your emotive tribute into my favourites D.A.

            I have had a lot of contact with our nhs heroes over the recent years and i'm fed up to the teeth of nhs knockers. We really must honour these people..... they are afraid of their environment and becoming infected but still they do their calling. Thank you for putting this subject among your fav's.

            The lady in my life works in the NHS, seven days a week now - just in case. The number of deep cleans is growing and the risks multiply. Joe

              Well please give her a big warm hug from yours truly. We must not forget them.

              HI DA ~ BRIAN HERE ~ Thanks for a very apt & moving presentation. Love the visual .very dramatic & the video ~ haunting !

              Blessings & Peace & Joy to You & Yours
              Love BRIAN & ANGELA ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿค๐Ÿงก

                WTF are you to thank me for caring? Such a patronising thing to say.

                • ANGELA & BRIAN

                  Thanks for your COMMENT ~ I apologise ~ Uneccessary I guess because we ALL CARE !

                  Yours BRIAN !

                  absolutely spot on my friend....
                  My daughter is presently working on the front line having been told to work in intensive care because of the demand being made upon the unit.... just one of many..

                    There will, i'm sure, be a national demand for a day to remember and honour after covid has finished it's progress. Give your daughter a big warm hug please.

                    • Neville


                      thanks DA... I hope so too sir... and sure will..

                      Dusk,
                      Excellently well expressed & true,
                      a nurse from Italy spoke on national television about how facing the pandemic was truly affecting them too & yet they continue with their duties to help everyone else, certainly healthcare workers are courageous heroes & we all should keep that in mind, enjoyable music...
                      Stay well, Sir
                      *CโœŒ

                        I saw a TV program 'coronavirus - into the red zone' where a TV journalist and camera team went into the centre of the italian outbreak. It was a frightening program. I really cannot understand the mentality of those who appear to think they are above this situation and continue to socialise.

                        Love this dusk, well done, Bill

                        • dusk arising

                          Thanks Bill, it wrote itself.... we all feel we owe something special to the nhs now.

                        • Fay Slimm

                          Wonderful heroes these ones who are facing the effects of this virus - - hospitals country-wide are seeing care shared by volunteer myriads - - - yes real heroes every single one.

                          • dusk arising

                            I do feel utterly useless because i have this extremely vulnerable status whereas i'd like to be out there helping safely. However in isolating i'm saving them the hassle of having to treat me i suppose (fingers crossed).
