    FRANCIS

    SAINT OF THE HOMELESS (well almost!)

    sitting at the bus stop
    across from the Y
    at burger king and bathesda's house
    homeless but with more friends
    that one could count
    a heart and mind that sometimes wonders
    but truest of spirit
    never leaves the eyes
    even when sick
    calling with a love
    not always understood
    even when bad he puts himself in chheck
    with his version
    of the marine's KP at his bus stop
    but if you do look close
    you may see the true spark of
    the christ light
    that is missing
    from so many
    sitting at the bus stop

      first, let me thank you for your comments and adding my poem to your favorites... thanks...

    now, let me just say that i love the fact that you are doing what you can for those people who are society and money driven world has left behind, you are fighting the good fight, even when out-numbered and underfunded... i wish there were more people out there like you...

    this poem rings true on so many levels and is an inspiration to me... thanks for writing it... keep it up...

    PEACE and LOVE, greg

      This is so true
    It is so sad to see homeless people and the tears they dare not show from there eyes
    I for one agree with your message and try to Bring Gods Love to them as often as I can
    Not a day goes by where I dont reach out to one homeless soul and let them know someone does care
    You touched on a topic (homelessness) that is very strong and dear to my heart
    May God Bless the homeless and continue to Bring them Love forever More
    God Bless
    Ron
