The Warmth Of A Beggar
Hello each, as Christmas is almost here I wish to share another poem with you all…I wrote this poem back in 2007 when I was on WLS but for some reason it didn’t arrive here with my other work. It’s title is ‘The Warmth Of A Beggar’ Wishing each a Happy Christmas…Much Love… xxx Lynn xxx
A warmth envelopes us as Christmas draws near
This spiritual season makes Angels appear
They sit on your shoulders and tell you it’s time
To dig deep in your pockets to make the world fine!
Sometimes you may pass a man on the street
And look in disgrace at the filth on his feet
With rags on his back and a cap on the ground
Pleading for help, without making a sound!
Try not to judge and walk in his shoes
Just live like this person with nothing to lose
Feeling the winter and shivering with cold
No roof on your head but a cap you must hold!
The Angels are watching to see what you do
They sit on your shoulder to be nearer to you
“It’s Christmas! They whisper, Please don’t walk by.”
Praying you’ll hear their words which they cry!
Weep for the unfortunate, and show them you care
And act with compassion for the needy out there
Give them some hope and help them get through
Merry Christmas to all, may Angels work with you!

King James Version (KJV)
17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
