Time is Mine. A poem by Olwen Carolan

Stopped by Covid
But time is mine,
Life has stopped, but living must start,
I can breathe, I can read, I can lay my head down,
No 6 am start, no bus, no Dart,
Time is mine,

Extended deadlines,
And time is mine,
Suspended pay and frozen mortgage,
Cups of tea, too much cake,
Toilet roll shortage,
But time is mine

Sitting alone
And time is mine,
Considering songs and places,
Pints of beer, fun and occasional tear,
Remembering certain faces,
Time is mine.
