ANGEL UNAWARE

THE CHILLY WIND WAS BLOWING

AS THE SNOW BEGAN TO FALL
YET NO ONE SEEMED TO NOTICE
THE OLD MAN HUDDLED AGAINST THE WALL
 HIS COAT WAS WORN AND TATTERED
FROM MANY YEARS OF WEAR
YET STILL THE PEOPLE PASSED HIM BY
AS THO HE WASN`T THERE
NOT ONE PERSON TOOK THE TIME
TO ASK THE OLD MAN IN
WHILE THEY WERE WARMING BY THE FIRE
HE WAS HUDDLED AGAINST THE WIND
THE OLD MAN NEVER SAID MUCH
THE WORDS HE SPOKE WERE FEW
SIMPLY FATHER PLEASE FORGIVE THEM
FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO
