Close to Home

The lockdown limbo drives me mad –

I understand the global threat,

No vaccine for this virus yet –

But close to home I miss my dad…

Continued absence makes me sad –

At eighty-three in hospital,

No visitors allowed at all,

Confused my dad’s dementia reigns –

We hope to see him once again,

Upsettingly it’s not our call…
