So said the Donut Man

I have felt it a few times
a soul panic
a sudden, all of the sudden,
feeling that something is missing

It scared me for years
those few times I felt it
because I thought once God was residing
that empty spot would be filled

But what I didn’t hear, what I didn’t know
until decades later
is that in some things God fills the emptiness
with an I owe you –

A deposit, a guarantee
which gives all the peace and hope our fraility can hold
but doesn’t solve every heart’s hurt and soul’s yearning
until another Day
