As a medical doctor working at the frontline of this pandemic here in Ireland, I would like to share a poem I wrote. Stay safe and stay strong this too shall pass.
May the breath of your soul be your wisdom guide,
May the beacon of your soul bring respite inside;
May you bring presence to all that you do,
May care and compassion be that which is you; May you have the gift of wisdom and staying awake,
May each dawn bring new promise not to forsake;
And dusk find you grateful for the helter-skelter
May night bring serenity and security of shelter;
As day turns to night, and month turns to year,
May the passing of time bring you no fear;
Each day you toil, as life’s depths take their toll,
May love and light bring breath to your soul.
