• Creating a Community Where Everyone Belongs

A poem about My Life, to share…

My Life staff member Nicky Aspinall has written this beautiful poem about how she feels about the charity and the Covid-19 pandemic. We thought you might like to read it too:

A dear colleague of mine planted a seed, asking me to write a piece that others could read,

A poem or ditty, the choice was mine, regarding the past or present, I couldn’t decline,

I decided upon Covid -19, as on TV, it was widely seen,

As the country was in complete despair, a virus at large, medics couldn’t repair,

The concern lay amid the people we support, everyone wanting answers following the government’s report,

A decision was made to contact families, guardians and friends, discussions concluded following the best interest of all who attend,

And despite many having to stay away from our site, Day Opportunities and My Life Support have provided care where needed both day and night,

Staff have pulled together to keep My Life afloat, at the end of the day, we’re all in the same boat,

We’ve weeded and planted and cared for the animals too, managing to keep busy, there’s been so much to do,

Still striving to create a community where everyone belongs, whistling whilst we work and singing songs,

When all this is over and much needed routines return, we will all have had lessons from which we have learned,

The most precious things in life surround us each day, providing us with guidance and showing us the way,

A hand up not out, is still what we believe, as we strive to support others whilst they achieve,

So, be rest assured that we are still here, and when everyone returns, you’ll hear us cheer,

My Life awaits you once things are more safe, it’s everyone that makes it such an amazing place.
