Christmas in a Pandemic

So much separation happened

My elder extended family members were forbidden for us to see them at their living facilities

Or for them to leave their current homes

Everything was at a phone call’s length

Or a computer screen away

The feeling of hugs vanished

While I made do with what I had and got to smile

I wondered…

Who knows if it will repeat next year?

    • Thanks for understanding. I wasn’t talking about my grandparents since all of them passed away years ago, but thanks for your concerns. They’re alright, but we did miss them during Christmas. Normally, I would see my immediate and extended family together, but that couldn’t happen with these guidelines. Sorry to hear that about Ontario being locked down again. I’ve been hearing multiple countries re-locking down when the numbers got higher.
