Brave sun – blue skies - the roof tiles gleam
Buds on the treetop make life seem
More optimistic – life moves on
Though the spark for many is now gone …
Easter is subdued this year
Brussels wrapped in cloak of fear
Christ is risen – we believe
Yet deep within our hearts we grieve.
Mounds of chocolate eggs unsold
Those who would eat them now lie cold
Or fight the good fight for their lives;
But the human spirit, hurt, survives!
