There will be time for everything
Things we can’t do right now.
For this will end eventually,
Be happy, do not frown.
There is time for Confirmation,
To become part of the Church.
To receive the Holy Spirit
And His treasures for which you search.
There is plenty of time for sports,
Football, hurling, rounders too.
For now though, train in your garden,
Practice some skills; just a few.
There will be time for ‘Back to School’,
Whenever it may be.
Will we be back in 6th class
Or move on to secondary?
There will be time for loved ones,
We WILL see them again.
But ring, facetime or write to them,
By i-phone or by pen.
There will be time for everything.
Now, enjoy your time at home
Family walks and board games
You are not alone.
