the era of being quarantined

when this is over 
may we never again take for granted
a handshake with a stranger
full shelves at the stores
conversations with neighbours
a crowded theatre
friday night out
a routine checkup
the school rush each morning
coffee with a friend
the stadium roaring
each deep breath
a boring tuesday

when this ends may we find
that we have become more like the people
we wanted to be
we were called to be
we hoped to be
and may we stay that way
better for each other 
because of the worse
