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
