Together by Mark Noble

Together in perfect harmony
With a moon shining upon your sweet eye
I can hear you calling softly in the wind
Whispering joy, happiness and harmony
We walk on the beach
I hear you calling from the heavenly stars
It’s just like a dream
A warm wind blowing, softening your hair
It is timeless, never-ending
Marcus as the Morning Star
Let us walk on the beach
Hearing the waves softly crashing
It’s like an everlasting harmony
Because we are together until eternity.

In the top half of the drawing, a thought bubble is divided vertically with yellow on the left and green to the right.

Covid 19 pandemic

Covid 19 may be a time to weep,
Or a time to mourn for some,
For others it may be a new time has begun,
A time when we realise we’re in isolation,
But we’re not alone because we need to help someone,
Or the helping each other has now begun.

We may have woken up to this fact that’s been known by some,
But we were conditioned to believe this was wrong,
My hope is that the time we remember this will be long,
Because by helping each other in community we become strong.

Try to remember the birds in the trees still sing their song,
Without so much pollution the ozone layer is a healing one,
Given a chance Mother Nature is strong,
This is a chance if we take this one.

Please don’t bow down or crumble in fear,
Somehow remember who’s near,
Pick up the phone or email someone,
As joined together we are stronger than just being one.
