Our Cedars client Tamsin has written this fantastic poem sharing her experience of the coronavirus lockdown.

When this is all over

I don't know when this virus goes away.

It makes me think that I need to stay safe.

I find it so frustrating just isolating everyday.

I miss being with my friends and the rest of my family and everyday I think of them.

This lockdown is taking forever  like a long and winding road.

When this is all over I get freedom to go out and about without the virus in the atmosphere.

When this is all over I will be close to everyone around me without the 2 metres social distancing

I can't wait for this lockdown to end.

Only 3 more weeks to go and hopefully it will be back to normal!

When all this is over, I can go back to all my clubs, centres and work. 

When this is all over I get to see my friends and the rest of the family.

I don't want to catch this deadly virus. This is why I have to wear a mask. 

When this is all over I can have hugs and cuddles from family and friends

I do fun things everyday like cooking, playing scrabble and many more activities but I still want this to be over. 

I am so lucky that I have a family. 

Please keep key workers  and care home residents safe.

When this is all over they can spend time with their families and their loved ones. 

Everyday is a challenge and every challenge I get through makes me happy. 

Every time I think of coronavirus it makes me want to scream. 

Thank God we still have ways to communicate on social media like FaceTime, Houseparty and Zoom. 

Please make this stop it's bothering me.

The NHS is making a huge difference everyday. 

Thank you and keep on going.

We will support you and other services too by clapping every Thursday evening. 

Every time I hear an ambulance going by I keep that person in my prayers. 

Everyday people die, please keep them in your hearts and in your prayers.


When this is all over I’ll jump for joy!

One of Tamsin's family members liked her poem so much, they made it into a song.
