Was not a great year.
Goodbye to 2020
by Kristina Krampe


Goodbye to 2020;
You were never our friend!
A time that killed and destroyed
from start until the end!

Releasing the pandemic,
that spread across the land.
Isolated from others:
we tried to understand .

The elderly all alone;
Nursing home, like prison.
Where was their choice and say?
Who made that decision?

People in the hospitals,
lonely, left to die.
Separated from their loved ones,
who want to say goodbye.

No celebrations to gather.
We had to stay at home.
Many depressed as they sat,
quarantined, all alone.

Goodbye to 2020!
You were never our friend!
But God is still in control
and at your very end:

Hello to 2021 !
We are glad you have come.
Your year is full of fresh hope
of what we will become.

The Lord will shine upon us
and we will gather close.
Hands will touch, doors will open!
Holidays to host!

Goodbye to 2020.
Hello 2021!
The dark days are now past us;
A new year has begun.
