I Walk Alone But I’m Never Alone

Alleyway, Back Alley, Bin, City, CrimeI am so glad that the clocks have gone forward and that we that we now have lighter brighter evenings.

Just before the clocks went forward, I was finishing work in the dark. Because of the social distancing measures put in place, the streets were empty. I must admit, I felt really nervous walking home in the dark, through London streets with nobody around. It made me clutch my handbag really tightly in case someone jumped out of the shadows and tried to run off with my bag.

But now when I finish work it is light. Now there are people out jogging (lots of joggers), cycling, walking their dog or walking. There were a lot this evening. Seeing lots of people on on the way home makes me nervous for a very different reason.

I feel safer to see people around. But I am still determined to stay in my little bubble. A lot of people make sure they maintain a distance from others. But some people are more casual. Right since this all started, I have been trying to make sure that I am healthy for work. I am sleeping more than normal. I am eating well. I am cheering up my heart.

I am walking alone, but in my heart I have lots of my loved ones who are a huge source of strength to me. They are keeping me going, full of joy, full of determination. I’m never alone.

Which brings to mind the words of a song I have grown up with – it has been sung thousands of times I am sure at Anfield Stadium, the home of Liverpool Football Club. But today I am going to link to Katherine Jenkins…who sings this song almost as well as I do! I’m kidding, I’m kidding! My voice is not a scratch on hers.

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark

At the end of a storm
There’s a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone

You’ll never walk alone

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone

You’ll never walk alone

      1. I used to have a ceason ticket in my teens. I don’t follow it much now but I still keep an eve out for the results. I like Klopp though, but nothing to do with football, he just seems a decent human being.
