DAY after DAY

DAY after DAY

A Poem by oursong2

There once was a man 

Who sat on the corner 

Every time i passed him 

I gave him a quarter 

He spoke no words but always smiled 

Even though his cloths were battered 

His cloths were torn 

He never had the time to scorn 

He just kept on smiling  i

Kept on walking by with my change 

Not even knowing it was flipped the other way 

He gave me laughter 

He gave me joy 

In an ever so drowning world 

He made me think 

He made step into the light 

For all around were shaded corners 

Except for his which glistened so bright 

He takes the good 

He has no bad 

In his life too make him sad 

He soaks up the sun 

He drowns out the grey 

For living a life 

Takes day after day
