Thoughts of Christmas are in the minority
Attempts at keeping warm, a priority
Curled up in a doorway and out of the wind
Long ago Christmas memories are growing dim

It seems like only yesterday they were young
Just a few days ago when school bells rung
Then grown and gone, thru trial and error
Some lived thru a war that was full of terror

They were business owners, husbands and wives
They were mothers, fathers, with kids and lives
Celebrated Christmas for the children's sake
Never dreaming of the twists their lives would take

Whatever the cause, whatever the reason
They are homeless and hopeless this Christmas season
I don't know the "something" I can do but pray
For their lives to turn around this Christmas Day
