A Poem
by Ned

I want to give you something

In fact, I want to give you everything,
but I can only manage it
on the installment plan
and this humble sandwich
is the latest offering.

Have patience, my love.
Take time, enjoy this
and all that is yet to come.
Let it nourish you within
and farther within
with the delicious gifts of the world
of which it is made
and the transcendant gift of the spirit
with which it is made.

For this
and so much more,
may our hearts be truly grateful
