More Than a Meal

blueberry cobbler may 14


The old couple excitedly 

dresses in their finest this day

there is a delivery

that is on the way


They set the table

add two extra spaces

using the fine dishes

at these two places


It is close to noon

when the doorbell rings

they are so happy

the elderly man begins to sing


He opens the door and

with two young people in sight

carrying a hot meal

made just right


He welcomes them in

they sit at the table

sharing a hot homemade meal

made out of household staples


These people share a meal

one day each week

loneliness is cured

the deliverance they seek
