Let’s forget about ‘remember whens’ and ‘If onlys’ too
Dwelling on them is a guarantee to upset and make you blue
Enjoy today and the power of now will make your spirits soar
Live in the present it is a gift we’ve often heard before

We’ve battled the pandemic adhered to lockdowns vehemently
Wore masks and socially distanced whilst in society
Applauded all frontline and essential workers who’ve shown up selflessly
Since this coronavirus respiratory disease appeared and spread globally

Antiviral covid-19 vaccines have been developed successfully
Access is underway worldwide as we await ours patiently
Looking forward to our new normal whatever it will be
Together with all our friends and family

You'd think if the power of now is so great, it would be easier to go along with it ☹️
