I can’t wait till it’s over

Angela Peacock

I can’t wait till it’s over

And all the world is free

To get out in the park and talk

To friends we couldn’t see 

I can’t wait till it’s over

Escape to near or far

The world it will our oyster be

By foot or plane or car

I can’t wait till it’s over 

The seaside’s calling me

The golden sand, the rock pools too

The waves upon the sea. 

I can’t wait till it’s over

It really has been hard

I’ll climb the hills and walk the glens

Escape from our back yard.  

I can’t wait till it’s over

To meet our family

A hug a kiss we don’t care which

Or both if they agree 

I can’t wait till it’s over

We’ll travel north and south

And east and west and up and down 

No masks on nose or mouth. 

I can’t wait till it’s over

The freedom and the choice

We’ll celebrate and laugh and sing

The whole world will rejoice 

I can’t wait till it’s over

Escape seems far away

A vaccine though is now being given

To thousands every day 

I can’t wait till it’s over

But please let’s not forget 

The thousands who can not escape 

Their lives cut short …… and yet

I can’t wait till it’s over 

The memories will last

For years and years and years until

They fade into the past

I can’t wait till it’s over

Covid’s not just a word

We’re lucky to have lived through it

Although it was absurd. 

And when at last it’s over

The world will change forever

The normal won’t be normal but…..

We can escape together!
