two packed lunches

this one's inspired by my sister riggy; the kind samaritan. 

every morning she makes 
two packed lunches
one for herself 
one for the homeless man 
down the road
and every morning when 
she hands him his lunch
and he smiles, a heavy load
is lifted off her shoulders
she smiles back 
he looks her in the eye
never does he shy 
away in shame, but instead
he exclaims with a 
certain humility and grace-
'God Bless!'
