The Gathering Of Angels


Hello friends…Just to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and to share a piece of my heart with you…At this time of year which should be a happy time I feel like there’s more which could be done to for the homeless who just need a chance to help them get through. I know there are con artists which use the homelessness as a ploy to deceive others but why should they suffer through their ignorance!!!…Quite a few years back I remember  hearing of a homeless man who was due to move into self contained quarters within weeks but sadly was found frozen to death outside a shop entrance…It was written in the paper “When you’ve been living on the streets for so long you lose your dignity and feel unwanted and unloved!”…My new poem is dedicated to each of these people…Hence

The Gathering Of Angels

Much Love To You Always…xxx Lynn xxx

 Unwanted

The snow kissed the Earth on a cold Winter’s day

A man on a bench dressed in rags starts to pray

These words did I hear as I passed slowly by

“Dear Lord hear my prayer as it’s now time to die!”

 Duif

Then I listened with envy at what he next said

“Thanks for the stars which give light on my bed

Also for the friendship of the creatures so small

And forgiving my enemies when they have been cruel!”

 Duif

His hands looked so cold with a hint of mid blue

And I hoped with my heart to help him get through!

My eyes felt so moist then I let out a sigh

A stranger to him yet he said “Please don’t cry!”

 Duif

“Come sit little one for there’s room on this seat

Take my last bread which I beg you to eat!

Please take my cloak as this day is real cold

Then go to your home as your parents may scold!”

 Duif

I whispered “Come hither, come home with me

Lets fly up to Heaven take my hand come and see!

The Lord has been waiting for your safe return

And has instructed an Angel to take his Son home!”

 Duif

He reached for my hand with such trust and belief

No more was he cold and his heart felt no grief

As a rich man now enters in Heaven above

And the Angels all gather to bless him with LOVE!

Matthew 25:35-40
 
35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;
 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?
38  When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39
 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least
of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

  1. Lovely to read another poem from you Lynn, it’s terrible that we do have the homeless wondering about with no shelter. I’m always thankful for my home, I could never live on the streets myself I love my home comforts to much. Usually with the homeless there is alcohol abuse and mental illness, it’s a shame that today’s society doesn’t help them some more…

    This is utterly beautiful – the whole post.

    Firstly, that newspaper article about that homeless man is just devastatingly sad, deeply sad. Secondly, your poem is just beautiful, but third, that Bible quote: truly food for thought. Excellent post.
