The Invitation

The message was clear
my specially arranged time
I wished for others to share
that became only mine

Perhaps no one saw
the image of guests
for my moment of awe
when my wish was to bless

They came not to me
though they were welcome
I just did not see
how to invite only some

The invitation was there
in my mind it did loom
I had space for to spare
but did not make room

For all that would be
in the joy I would share
simply just could not see
that I had no room there

You see that the limit
enveloped my mind
of the generous invite
which was only for one.
