Sound Cafe Guest Poem

This is a poem from Barbara, one of the Sound Cafe volunteers.  Barbara has really burgeoned as a poet, and she wrote this Christmas poem during our last meeting.


Christmas is a time

for giving and sharing

not putting yourself first

others before yourself

Not the cost

it’s the thought which counts

Thinking about those

Who are on the street

who have no roof over their head

who are sleeping on the streets

when nights are freezing long

and cold

Longing for the day to come

when hopefully the day is bright

and cheerful

those who have no family

only memories of Xmases past

May they be comforted

in their loss

by many good, kind and caring

Friends at this time

of the Year.
