The Table

Despite the piles
of medical bills
and legal notices
and so many other things
that demand attention
they managed to share
their special meal
at the family table.

Despite the unspoken
broken feelings of pain
around issues new
and old
there was still
time and space
around the table
for comfort food.

Just as
ages ago
there was still time
for bread and wine
around the table
before He was handed over
to suffering and death.
