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
