Because I don’t want to get it
Because that would mean I help spread it
But there’s no one else who is able to do it
And supplies need to be replenished.
So I wear the mask and say a prayer
That I may not be included in the statistics
And that this sickness, never touches my family.
Let’s get stuck together from afar
Let’s do our morning routine a bit differently
Let’s stay indoors and enjoy the moment
Let’s do our part to keep each other safe
I stay in my room where I’m safe
I stay there to have space and time for myself
Time for myself.
I used to breathe around the house
And just be still in the silence and rudimentary life.
Now I stay in my room trying to keep the noise out
Drown it all down.
So I stay in my room
The only place I feel safe.
I worry of what to wear
Yet there is a side in the world, somewhere
Where they worry for their lives.
I listen to music,
They listen to bombings
Nowhere is safe
My heart breaks.
I watch the news
They watch their loved ones die
For them I cry
And pray for their sake.
I shed tears and share a prayer
I’ve traveled far and climbed the highest mountains
But nothing compares with the broken tree house
It’s not much and it’s not a lot
But it’s where I can be just be me
I spend my time in search of a place
Where I can lay my ming to rest
And it is there that I can completely throw my troubles away
Cherry lips I don’t have
But they speak nothing but praise for you
I am not as graceful as a princess
Yet I can be the gentle arm that catches you when you fall
A pretty face I do not have
But a heart full of love can give you good cheer
Know this and be not afraid
You have me, your shoulder
Oh the moon! So bright it shines
I reach out my hands to touch it
It let’s me hold it for a brief moment
And at that moment
I am flooded with happiness
Hugs for the lonely
Hugs for those who are happy
Hugs for the brave
And those who dared
Hugs for those who crave
And those who are scared
Hugs are for everyone
And everyone deserves a hug
People will misunderstand you
Tell lies until you’ve lost what’s true
Some will break you, will bring false hope
They will drive you insane until you’re at the end of your rope
They will step on you, bring you down
They’ll laugh at you, make you a foolish clown
But when you’re at the brink of giving up
I’d like you to take a moment and stop
And remember me
I’d like you to really see
That someone is always here and there for you
That’s no lie, that is the truth
Hold me tight don’t let me go
I am slowly slipping
I’m afraid of where to go
No one here to save me
Oh! But lo and behold!
You reach for me
You saved me
All the things that I fear of
Is removed and gone
You have filled the empty space
You made me feel safe
