Its been a month
A month since I shut the door and flipped the sign to closed
A month full of worry if we can back to work, but nobody knows
A month without seeing my smiling customers faces,
A month with a Main Street full of empty parking spaces
A month full of bills
A month full of purchasing fails
A month that feels like forever knocking the wind out of my sails
I'm gonna keep my chin up, I'm trying to find a way, I don't want this virus to chase my dream away.
So I'll keep on working in any way I can, until we're back to normal and can see each other again.
