A worried daughter
Woke at night
Looked at her phone
Waiting for a call
Wondering how her Mamma was faring,
under the strains
of the dreaded Covid.
She tries to still her mind
With counting games
Capital cities, memories of
Warmth, love and holidays
All to no avail.
It seems so long ago.
So now she sits in bed
Snuggled up in a star red dressing gown
To her best friend and Mamma
Hoping the night has gone well for her
There is some reprieve in the illness
Hoping she knows her worried daughter
Is always there for her.
I wrote this little missive early this morning following my mother’s positive test for Covid yesterday. The illness has floored my husband and me earlier in the week although I feel a tinge of improvement.
I feel blessed with my family and my friends. Their love, concern and care keep me strong.
Wishing everyone good health and more luck than us at dodging this latest wave.
