Gold

i had a chance

to share the joy

that i had always known

 

and so i stood

and raised them up

and brought forth tears from stone

 

it's such a shame

that they were shocked

to find love in the air

 

because no one

seemed to know what

it meant to truely care

 

i gave a bit

and then some more

until we gave it all

 

not one more boot

nor sleeping bag

available at all

 

there was a man

who would not take

till others had their score

 

then he returned

in hopes of gloves

by then there were no more

 

he left us then

without a frown

and thanked us right away

 

for helping out

and having gloves

for those in need that day

 

not one person

should be dismissed

do not discount one soul

 

for those i know

with hearts of gold

are found without a home
