Cherry tree

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

Some­times in the morn­ing When the world is hard to face In lonely iso­la­tion

No con­tact with the hu­man race

It feels life’s not worth liv­ing With no-one there to share

And ev­ery day’s a bur­den With­out a loved-one close to care

To wither be­hind sad­ness

The cold and bleak de­spair

When you cry out in the dark­ness No-one an­swers – no-one’s there

But to­day the sun is shin­ing Its rays light the cherry tree The pink and ra­di­ant blos­som Reaches out to com­fort me

And the daf­fodils are nod­ding The prim­rose pale and bright And tulips sway in uni­son To grace the morn­ing light

The world is full of beauty And friends are on the ’phone Al­though in iso­la­tion

We’re not re­ally on our

own

So let’s fo­cus on the fu­ture When of the virus we’ll

be free

Keep look­ing at the

blos­som

On the sun-lit cherry tree
