The Boy’s Gift

Standard

I only have

two little fish and

the five barley loaves

my mother packed

for my father and me

for our long

walk home.

 

I’ve been hungry before

and fear losing my little dinner,

 

but your eyes so fill my heart,

that, smiling, I give you all I have.

 

Oh, you must be the One!

 

for from my meager dole

you feed five thousand souls.

 

Never again

will I be hungry!
