Deacon: ‘I wear my mask because it’s you I love’

TO THE EDITOR:

I wear a mask,
Not on orders from above.
I wear my mask
Because it’s you I love.

I care for your health
So it won’t be automatic
For you to catch COVID from me,
If I’m asymptomatic.

We’re created with a dignity
That no one can measure.
Each and every life
Should be one that we treasure.

We’ll beat this thing back,
I am fully aware.
We’ll beat this thing back,
Only if we care.

Let’s work together,
If need be from six-feet apart.
With masks, with patience,
with mercy,
Let us share a generous heart

Deacon Stephen Raymond, Providence
