Received such good news on this Easter

Of surgical recoveries and hospital releases

Due to quarantines we couldn’t physically meet

But folk still cooked and enjoyed feasts

And dressed up to celebrate resurrection of Jesus

Reminding us this pandemic won’t defeat us

Because God still hearing our pleas and prayers


While the grim news still remains on tv

Of the loss of lives and economies

In the middle of one of the world’s worst tragedies

It’s good news when an email is received

That all is well with friends and family


True to the words in Psalm 46

God has been our refuse and strength

And one day, I hope soon

This pandemic will pass through

And the whole world will have good news.
