MY HOMELESS BROTHER

MY HELPLESS BROTHER

I see you sitting near the wall,

Looking malnourished,

And miserable,

I really do want to help you to get back on your feet,

So you can somehow start to see,

That life for you can be precious,

Only if you could find a way to be happy,

Grab my hands I say,

Don't turn your head the other way,

This is what we supposed to do,

Help each other through the hard times,

Even If I don't know you,

I look into your eyes and I get sad,

Somehow I know,

That not all of you is bad,

Only if you would give yourself a second chance,

To have that life, that you sometimes wish you had,

It's time to not give up so easily,

Trust me, this could be easy,

All you gotta do is give me your hand,

And I will lead you to that graceful land.

Trust me I'm your sister,

The lord above said to show you love,

That's what I do,

Even if I don't know you,

As far as I'm concerned your still my brother,

Even though we don’t come from the same mother,

The lord above … showed me you,

And told me what I should do,

So give me your hand,

You lost soul of a man,

And I will show you the way to that Graceful land.
