The Homeless Angels

Down on their luck
Life never easy
Days take forever
Nights totally empty

Huddled in corners
On streets that are mean
Having no memory
Of the last time they were clean

Hungry and cold
Often living in fear
At times believing
Their end is quite near

Sure they're the homeless
But there are days they have hope
Knowing the angels will come
And help them to cope

Clothing and shoes
Blankets and food
Given them freely
Brightening their mood

The Homeless Angels of Lansing
Reaching into Detroit and to Flint
Helping these folks who are broken
Offering more than a splint

It's not a hand out
More like a hand up
Removing the void
While filling their cup
