When The Unrest Lifts
What we remember will be a lesson for all.. Our strength that carried us when we thought we would fall..
When the unrest lifts
And our earth is clear ..
And our hearts feel safe
And free from fear ..
When our sadness subsides
To make room for smiles
And we’ve grieved our loss
And reconciled ..
What we remember will be a lesson for all..
Our strength that carried us when we thought we would fall..
Our unity world over .. connecting everyone..
our commitment, our passion..
The invisible war that we won..
We’ll remember when the darkness let in the light ..
When we realised what was important upon our plight ..
Spending time with loved ones..
Making time to talk..
laughter, love & freedom
And just a simple walk..
Opening our eyes to the wonders..
of each day that we greet
From the sky up above us
to the earth beneath our feet ..
respecting all the people who worked so hard to save ..
and never forgetting our heroes ..
Who’s lives they sadly gave ..
We will remember the rainbows ..
That lit up our skies,
We will remember the FaceTime ..
And tearful goodbyes,
We’ll remember cuppas on doorsteps
And bingos in streets,
Thursday night clapping ..
With We Will Rock You beats
And when our children gave hope
Painting rainbows galore ..
On everyone’s windows and everyone’s door 🌈
Well remember heart-lifting on doorsteps
With deliveries of food ..
With a chat & a smile
To lift up the mood
We will remember how communities
Joined together as one .
And worked together tirelessly
And got the job done
Well remember how families
Had time to spare
And how our world healed
And smog became clear
Because it’s the importance of hope..
That will carry us through..
And these are my hopes, my wishes, my love…
Sent to all of you ❤️
