I want to get back to normal

I want to get up in the morning feeling refreshed and without asking, was it a bad dream.  I want to get up with that bad dream gone forever.

I want to feel the sunshine on my skin, that strokes my face with tenderness and makes me happy and secure with its warmth and kindness.
I want to feel joyful. I want to be me again. I want to be the person who is positive, who laughs, who dances, who sings, who runs, who enjoys life….

I want to be young again. I want my loved ones, who take care of me. I want to feel safe. I want to feel warm. I want to be protected from danger. 

I want to see the light. I want to continue to feel the beauty of nature. I want us all to respect others, to take care of others. I want us to recognize that we are not alone in this world, I want us to realize that wealth and power does not make us indifferent faced to adversaries. 

I want us to take this time to think about how we can protect the most vulnerable, to ensure that we continue to enjoy this beautiful world, that is our ours.
