When this is all over
24-03-2021 • Detective • by Sofia A
When this is all over, I will go out in the street without a mask on and I'll let out a sigh of relief.

When this is all over, my friends and I will meet up somewhere and get into a group hug which will last as long as we'll need it to (spoiler: it will be very long).

When this is all over, we'll celebrate all the birthdays we didn't get to celebrate in one big party.

When this is all over, life will start again and I'll be able to carry on.

I want this to be over so bad, but I'll wait.
I'll wait because I don't want to be back in quarantine after just one year.

I'll wait because I don't want to lose anyone else.

When this is all over, life will have a much better taste and we'll be able to hug our loved ones.

But when this is all over, we will still remember what happened. We can't forget, even though we want to.

We need to remember, remember all that we lost, so that we won't take it for granted again.
