The Gathering

We have to be careful about our gathering days.
The days full of flowers and loved ones
Around your neck and in your being.
Those flowers will feel far away some days, loved ones lost in clouds.
And then you'll wish every day could be a gathering day.

But how astonishing is it the there's anything to gather at all, ever?
It let's you gather,
And then not,
And then get better.

Take precaution in your idea of what that day will look like.
And it's there, it's always there,
Everyday is always there for the gathering.
