Huddled by a street sign
A lonely beggar stands
As he watches people
Carry out lifes demands

A face weathered and sad
His clothes wrinkled and torn
He clutches his knapsack
His appearance forlorn

Around him people rush
For it "Tis the season"
But for this ole' lost soul
Christmas has no reason

The city comes alive
With colored lights and glee
All of the little shops
Don a lit Christmas tree

Reflected in his eyes
Are dreams that have gone bad
Memories that haunt him
Of the life he once had

Carolers stand singing
Their merry tunes of hope
While this pain~stricken man
Tries to find strength to cope

Bags are over~flowing
With holiday good cheer
No one seems to notice
The beggars "silent~tear"

Far more truth than fiction in your skillfully penned poetry, Miss Pinky. The music did all it could to exceed the image of the soul you wrote of. but as the sad notes joined together in their effort, they failed.

I've seen the reality of the lost and forlorn...methinks you have as well.

So happy you're here, Miss Pinky. Stick around.

...just bein' Bluesy
