La Vie en Quarantaine

Distanciation sociale a dominé nos vies
Une mesure essentielle de la vie quotidienne
Mais,
Nous faisons tout sauf être socialement distant
Distance physicale peut être mesuré,
Nous pouvons avoir un distance d’une metre,
Mais nous ouvrons nos cœurs,
Et nous nous connectons avec nous-mêmes
Dans une manière plus profonde qu’on peut imaginer
Ce va disparaître, et avec lui,
La douleur de manquant quelqu’un qu’on adore,
Comme un phénix qui renaît de ses cendres,
L’amour et la vie se retrouveront


English Translation:

Life in Quarantine
Social distancing has taken over,
An essential part of daily life now, 
But,
We are doing anything but being socially distant
Physical distance can be measured,
And we can stay 6 feet apart
But we are opening up with our hearts,
And connecting with each other,
In a way more profound than anyone could imagine,
This will pass, and with it,
The pain of missing someone that you love,
Like a phoenix rising out of the ashes,
Love and life will meet again
