Homeless woman

Dedicate to all who face adversity

She holds her head up high
As frigid blisters upon her feet
Reminding her of her struggle,
of her plight
In a wintery night, she feels
the chills running down her
Has her tears become frozen,
She keeps the vision of hope
And for a second, she smells
the scent of spring
She heard the sound of joy
Sharing stories of her youth
uttered tales of love
She felt she never had,
Beckoned,invoked intimacy
to her spirit
And for a moment, she forgot
For a moment she forgot pain.
