The Emmaus Resolution

Boy, were we dumb!
How could we have been so blind
As not to see?
It’s all so obvious now,
In retrospect.
And yet it wasn’t until He broke the bread
–Kind of His signature move,
If you know what I mean–
That we knew Him.

Now we understand
Why our hearts burned within us
As we walked with this stranger
Who explained to us all the things
We should have explained to Him!

Well, no matter: We’ve learned our lesson.
We know, now, that He might appear
In places or ways we don’t expect.
Our eyes are open,
We’re ready.

There’s no way
We’ll make that mistake
Again…
