Why Touch Me

Touch me not I'm eighty
sans all owing to Covid 19
experiences similarly
poet like you equally

will morning sun
I'll ever see
walk about in dew
grass will envelop me
would anyone know

I'm no more

cold breeze will continue slapping
a new born leaf
not knowing autumn
has already come for me
now simply flying in thin air
like a twisted autumn one

will you comprehend
the surprise she experiences
when awake finds me missing
an empty bed
her face now blood red

Hi, Lovedly,
Of your many Covid poems, this is the most significant to me. It is extremely personal and has simple, but genuine emotion. Ours is to wonder if we will see the morning sun, walk about on dewy grass, see the autumn. Food for thought, I believe, as I wash my hands! Stay safe, Lovedly.
Thank you,
L

the very last verse affects me the most. We oldies are the most-likely to be affected by the virus, but what will be will be. I hate to imagine my wife's face each morning as she awakens to find my side of the bed--empty. Perish the thought! Now you've done it to me, Lovedly! I'll need to do some quick and hard living before Covid 19 finds me. Good write! Jerry

and thanks to both above thee for Inspiring mme @80
Corona is just at the periphery
imagine what is going on at other places

BUT AS YOU SAY
what will be will be
Surely
we have lived so far
HAPPILY
HOPEFULLY
DUTIFULLY
and SMILINGLY
Still
what will be will be
