Kitchen table

A place to talk,
Deep, important things,
A place to keep,
Silly and important things.

The son eating noodles,
The positive pregnancy test,
Or even just a place to rest.

From silent prayers,
Hugs and kisses, 
To loud fights,
In silent nights.

It need not always be,
A real table you see,
It could just be,
Any corner or a place to be.
