GET-TO-GATHER

(Dedication: For Ann, Kerri, Ramona and LeeNa.) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dear friends from days gone by, Gather to share a meal; We talk and soon time flies, Exchange wit and goodwill. How the years have brought change, To each a path to walk; Yet years hurled good and strange, Now we can fill our talk. In between our food fare, Share some journey insights; Cite trials and pains and cares, Succeed to share delight. It seems like yesterday When we were young and fair; But look at us today: Sparks of life's grand affairs. Each to a pathway poise, To love and live and play; Each to a fate and choice That make sense of each day. Our meeting springs new joy In touching old friends here; We lift the veils of ploy To celebrate good cheer. So till the next meeting, May love and laughter bind; Let each heart find meaning In love and hope most kind. This get-to-gather feast Is a scene from old times; Fate and time can at least Surround with lovely chimes. As we go away then, Let joy and peace align; Dear friends just where and when To live fond quest and mind. Let each heart feel delight In shared moments here; Let love give heart true sight To live the way of cheer. Leon Enriquez 02 February 2015 Singapore
