Let’s have heart


Let’s have heart


And space ourselves

Three feet apart

Let’s act fast

to bring this disease

to its last



Let’s have heart

and play our part

To do our best

to turn the spread off


Hand sanitizers



Elbow coughs


Masks and rubbing alcohol

Social distancing and all

Let’s follow the safety protocol

and not put up a resistance

to what is meant

to preserve our existence


Let’s protect one another and

be each other’s sister

and brother

Let’s mold a better

survival rate

for everyone

Paving a better year to come

in 2021

Let’s protect our fathers and


And also our neighbours

especially the elders

Don’t be naive

or be a fool


To think that this could never

happen to you or to your

loved ones

For many

There are no symptoms

But still they can spread t

he virus

To any one of us in

the populace


So let’s have heart

Three feet apart

while we unite

In preventing the unwanted


Let’s heed to the word

Let’s do what we can

to flatten the curve

Let’s continue to be safe

Doing what’s right

So we can live to see

Another day and night

Let’s have heart


And do our utmost

To play our part.
