Heaven's Hung in Black

Many are lost amidst this spiralling loss Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters Extensions to us in pandemic slaughter When we've lost whom we love, it severs But it's the many whom don't give track Then be their 'Heaven's Hung in Black'

Jan, I'm seeing on a daily basis that some people don't really care about whose beside them, and in turn when they go home, whose beside them :( Lordy knows what it's going to take for people to realise that it could their people, then just maybe, they'll understand when they've LOST someone so close. Hugs from Bonnie Inverness to you and yours XXX
