The Pascal Pause upon us soon
Exciting time now tinged with gloom
On Tuesday, just another day
Queues for boarding blown away.
Zaventem - targeted attack
Many now will not come back
Over thirty lives are lost
Spring exodus now touched with frost.
The wait for news, however slight
Takes its toll throughout the night
On anxious colleague, life-long friend;
Some families will never mend...
More surveillance, more delays
A wave of apprehension stays
Above us all; though life re-starts
We travel now with heavy hearts...
