Street Kids

icy sidewalks so cold they creak
as children stand with freezing feet
a warm place tonight they must seek
the sun falls down to a night so bleak

broken spirits living on the street
no protection from ones they meet
fires glow and music heard within
the comfort of homes of well fed kin

strangers walk by ignoring their plight
there came an angel, a halo of light
beckoning them to enter her warm lair
they slept in peace upon golden hair

a guardian of love and renewed hope
helping small ones try hard to cope
how loudly these small hearts can beat
if only we help take them off the street
