NOW EAT I THROUGH MY BLESSING (an end-of-meal prayer)

Now eat I through
this given blessing of my food
with present Thought and Love,
till my last cherished bites
are taken and well chewed. . .

If I but stay
enough to feel my luck,
perchance I could
receive and send a few words up,
to pray,
or else, softly to myself to say,
“My meal’s complete–
It was and is enough.
And it was Good!

Note: The above is a revision of a poem originally posted on 3/19/15, which I’ve now switched to the new iteration. I am re-posting it here, so that my current readers will have a better chance of finding it again, or for the first time.

Thank you for reading my work. I hope you enjoy it!
