Pandemic Reality Part Five by Mary L. Schmidt © November 2020
Shortness of breath and dizziness prevailed,
My husband increased my oxygen, I inhaled;
Falling to my knees as I walked, I surely failed;
With my husband at my side, falls curtailed.
Covid-19 zapped all of my strength and muscle,
Baby steps, baby steps, no need to hustle;
With further decline, I truly felt like rubble,
My husband did well to make sense of my puzzle.
