We'll Meet Again

Back then they rationed food and fuel

Parachutes were transformed into wedding dresses,

Children were evacuated from cities for safety.

Loved ones, separated by distance wrestled

The enemy that had taken their freedom

Everyone was “in this together”

Determined to get through it.

Heroes, selflessly battled on the frontline

Vowing to keep fighting until the foe was vanquished

While Vera promised, “We’ll meet again.”

Now they’ve rationed hugs and kisses

Duvet covers are being transformed into scrubs,

Those children are now cocooned at home for safety.

Loved ones, separated by distance wrestle

The enemy that has taken our freedom

Everyone is “in this together”

Determined to get through it.

Heroes, selflessly battle on the frontline

Vowing to keep fighting until the foe has been vanquished.

While we promise each other, “We’ll meet again.”
