Crumbs

I found an old poem yesterday that I had written about a year ago on christmas eve:

No more until the new year,
you said

I wait,
patiently
endlessly
every day

like a starved sparrow
I live, nurtured only by
the small crumbs of love
left on my wooden table

I sit here, watching closely
as the sun rises and sets
how the morning slowly fades
to night and how my crumbs
bit by bit are disappearing.

Oh, Ida, this is so lovely. "Small crumbs of love..." Beautiful and sad.

I know I already left a comment here, but I have been thinking about this poem all day. Sometimes all someone can offer are small crumbs of love...I know I always feel that I need so much more...You wrote this so well.
