A GATHERING OF FRIENDS

A GATHERING OF FRIENDS

What a time they must be having
for how they loved to talk.
I can see them gathering
maybe ambling side by side.
Surely it would have to be in a garden
for it was in a garden
that each of them was happiest. 
To touch the earth 
and let it fall through their fingers..
they were then content.
Even those I did not know
they tell me they, too, loved the soil, 
the wind and rain upon their face..
or the sunlight playing on their hair.
Can you imagine the conversations - 
who did what and when and where?
Their laughter shall echo through time
for they all had such a sense of humour. 
What a gathering they must be having, 
our loved ones, in Heaven.
