Poem By Nancy Amato

I saw a most distressing sight
Driving down young street one night
A man with all his belongings by his side
No place to go, no place to reside
Cold and lonely with the saddest eyes
In my mind I heard his silent cries
Why does this happen? Where does it lead?
Men, woman and children are all in need
No one to help then nowhere to sleep
Making a bed from cardboard, out on the street
People are dying from the winters chill
Any help for the homeless, there is nil
Take a drive downtown and you will see
Your heart will sadden as mine did
Wanting to set those poor souls free

Look in my eyes, what do you see,
Beauty of the inner me.
Deep down in your heart, what do you feel,
The beauty of a love that is real.


The smell of spring in the air so sweet
Ole mother nature is turning up the heat
As the snowmen slowly melts away
The kids finally get out to play
