Aching for Your Voice

To have been at the table
in that upper room
to have felt the warm water
your hands washing my feet

Aching for your voice
your words different from before
all the other meals shared
unlike this moment in time

Taking the unleaven bread
the loaf we had gotten
blessing the bread
breaking it with words
of your coming sacrifice

So still we sat there
hoping we weren’t hearing
the certainty of your death
as you spoke over the cup
saying this was your blood
that we must remember this too
