Blue Christmas among the Covid
With friends alone away amid,
Bearing sadness behind the mask,
Bring them back next year we ask,
To be happy again and worry free,
In good health and full of glee.
We look ahead to the next Christmas,
To sharing friendship from all of us
With friends in isolation so far away
To share the joy of the holiday.
Merry Christmas to all in isolation,
Make our homes your future destination.
