4 Million More Hours

4 Million More Hours

i’m no good at numbers,
thus i suck at Math
if you ask me to add a number
then multiply and divide,
i’d completely be lost,
so lost i’d be hiding
in shame and probably in guilt,
i am guilty beyond reasonable doubt
for not memorizing
the multiplication table by heart

i’m no good at numbers,
thus i suck at Math
but i could totally remember
the moment i saw you last,
then add it on to today,
and it’s a total of
180 days, equivalent to 6 months,
that’s 4, 320 hours, my dear
of not being with you,
of not holding you close to me,
of not feeling your touch

4, 320 hours, that’s a lot,
a lot of lost opportunities lost chances
and lost memories with you
but what could i do?
4, 320 is not even close, close to current
4.55 million Covid -19 death tolls worldwide
and so my dear, i know it’s been a while
but hold on tight, hang on there
‘cos i know we’ll be spending
4 million more loving hours together
let’s just stay safe and stay aliveΒ

  2. Being separated from your loved ones can be hard. But there are many who suffer a fate much worse than that. Hang in there. You’ll be reunited soon. Beautifully written, my dear ❀️

    Because of Covid19 I haven’t seen one of my kiddos in 2 years. 😦 Hopefully by the end of this year or soon after. YAY and Thank Goodness for Skype, Zoom, phone calls, texting, etc. πŸ™‚
