On That Day

 

There came a day

We didn’t hug our mothers.

There came a day

We didn’t kiss our lovers.

And on that day

The sun rose like any other,

But we watched the numbers grow—

Those who didn’t recover.

There came a day,

There came a day.

 

There came a day

We couldn’t leave our houses.

There came a day

We looked at children and spouses

And wondered if they

Could be spared and counted

Among the saved.

There came a day,

There came a day.

 

And love still remains,

It’s in the stains

On the masks and gloves.

And love still proclaims,

All the names

Of those who risk dying for us.

And love makes a claim

On the heart

That cares enough

To love, and sing this refrain

To remind us

We need the human touch.

Love and sing this refrain

To remind us

We need the human touch.

Love and sing this refrain

To remind us

We need the human touch.

We need the human touch.

 

There will come a day

We will hug our mothers.

There will come a day

We will kiss our lovers.

And on that day

We’ll be sisters and brothers

And the sun will rise—

May we truly see each other.

On that day,

On that day.

May we truly see each other

On that day,

On that day.
