At The Table

At The Table

The clock on the wall

reveals the dinner hour

Mom gives a call

but who can hear

when no one is near-

Rooms with screens

among other things

take part in

"the great divide"

while empty chairs

remain side by side

without a family

to share

a prayer of thanks

or a meal -

Busyness and technology

have begun to steal

the most tender part

of the family heart.


At the table

we were once able

to be together

for a little while

of each day

with a meal and a pray.

How sad, that family time

At the table

has drifted away.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Congratulations on having your poem be a part of the Faithwriters Jewel Chest! This was a simple poem that carried a powerful message -- the importance of spending time as a family, especially around the dinner table. I'm sure that every busy person with a family can relate to these words. It sure touched my heart and made me think about how important my own family was to me and that nothing can replace the time spent with them. Thanks for sharing your poem!

The truth in this powerful peace will touch many hearts. Family is a gift from God, and, so we all ache when things change...but one thing never changes - God's love and His hand that supports us through all of life's challenges. Congrats on being chosen for the Faithwriters Jewel Chest. Loved this...thank you. God Bless~

I enjoyed your poem. This is struggle that really resonates with me as my kids grow and become more involved in extra-curricular activities. I love this part of your poem: "the great divide" while empty chairs remain side by side You could have ended right there. I know that you had more to say, but for me that sense of emptiness and loneliness in those lines was the strongest feeling you evoked, and what came after was not nearly as strong.

Just more evidence that our world is failing and how much more we need to "seek first His Kingdom" that our souls may be fully nourished at His Table. I know He patiently awaits our presence there, where a glorious feast has been prepared to feed us with His everlasting love and life...
