Word Prompt - We Write Poems - Love

Thursday Poets Rally

After loving all your friends and family
is there enough room
for thousands more?
Our hearts are small, but there is  vacancy

This time of the year, we sometimes forget
There are homeless,
Victims of 911
Men and women, fighting for our freedom

During this season, there are people losing homes
No Christmas Tree's 
No Presents for  children
Sometimes, there is no food

Our Country needs people 
To find love in their hearts
For the helpless, homeless, and depressed
Do you have  room to love them?

If you give something
Money, a coat, a meal
Don't think how good it made you feel
Think, you have given someone a piece of your heart

You have enough love, for millions
Different it may be
Let's not forget the elderly, the abused, animals that are beaten and starved
Let's go back to the basic we were taught

Love your neighbor
Perhaps, it will be you in their situation someday
We never know our future
If you do something kind with love, you teach your children what love really means

    To find love in their hearts
    For the helpless, homeless, and depressed
    Do you have room to love them?"

  7. You've captured the true meaning of Christmas. I am happy to see that, in spite of the economy, I see so many people giving. Here in NV we are #1 unempl0yment @ 14.4% and #1 foreclosure. There is such great need. Good reminder, Wisteria.
