The Homeless One, by Gregory Amour

I saw my mother in a homeless face
I saw my sisters too
I saw the brother I never had
I saw myself and I saw you

I gave a smile to this homeless one
I could feel her sense of lack
Disheveled, worn, poor and old
I was blessed: She smiled back

As I passed her in the grocery aisle
I saw a hard life on her face
Though matted, toothless,tired and worn
She had a prideful sense of grace

A quart of milk was all she bought
Ragged slippers on her feet
And then she shuffled quietly
Into that invisible street

I made a point to follow her
And gave her what I could
And wondered if it was enough
When before the lord I stood

Saddened, I came home and cried
And prayed she’d be ok
That she would find some peace that night
And make it through another day

In her face I saw all of us,.
All the loved ones we adored
And in that tired, weathered face,
I saw our wearied Lord

The only thing lacking is the will...
