Mind the Gaps
Mind the gaps.
There are no happy ever afters,
just some gaps between the tears,
with houses packed unto their rafters
in which you can forget your fears
surrounded by those who love you
and perhaps by those that you love too.
I do hope your gaps are many;
And that your tears are singularly few
for while our tears are two-a-penny
such gaps are quite priceless it's true.
We can't know for certain, how long each gap will last,
But regardless we know this, they'll always go too fast.
