My heart breaks because I cannot heal your pain.
So many helpless names and faces.
No one cares,
No one wonders,
Where they will find shelter,
Where they will find food,
Each one who passes looks back with disgust;
But truly they should only feel shame.
Shame doesn’t s cross their mind.
They believe they have done nothing wrong as they look the other way.
Some day they may need a helping hand,
They may find that no one wants to help them.
So as I pass by I give all I can and wish them good luck,
wishing and asking for nothing in return.
I hope for their future, wishing only good things.
May their tomorrows be better than their todays.
May they find the strength to begin over again.
May they receive the helping hand so badly needed.
May they find the strength and the courage to take all the help that is given.
May each person who has something to offer
be generous enough to share with someone who needs something.
Be kind-hearted and gentle and offer words of encouragement.
Your reward will be happiness and comfort.
Your heart will feel warmth and you may even shed a tear.
This is a good thing.
The help you lend offers happiness to an entire family
who may have lost the chance to see their loved one whole again.
So won’t you be kind and help the one you think to pass by.
