Cherry tomatoes, celery.
Mini-carrots, stringy cheese.
Butter crackers, square Cheez-Its.
snack-sized baggies, so it fits.
Raspberry juice box, flexi straw,
ice pack cooling, as it thaws.
My day brings many, many things,
while you’re at school, I’m in meetings.
The only way I get to be,
there for you, is when you eat.
So, look at each and every piece,
and know I put my love in between.
When I make your lunch for you,
I’m hoping your day goes smooth.
We’ll meet up later,
to hash it out.
And you’ll tell me,
what to keep out.
And when I go to make it new,
I’ll remember the revised menu.
