‘Shh! my angel

Go to sleep.

Rest your eyes before the sun peeps.

But say some prayers

Especially for those infected

With the deadly virus.

This world it has afflicted.’


‘Shh! My mumma

I shall indeed sleep.

And pray to angels

Over the sick, their watch they will keep.

But momma, the ones who already perished..

Did they not pray?

Did their loved ones not pray?

Why then, do they, not see the light of day?’
