It's a pint of blood needed For folks we don’t know Or a handful of tissues When their tears start to flow A quiet embrace When their world falls apart And a light at the door When they come after dark It's that kiss of forgiveness When we still feel the hurt Or a check in the mail When they’ve been out of work Angel songs after midnight When we’re up watching sheep And a Babe in a manger On a night that's so deep!

Pete, that’s beautiful! I can see this on Christmas cards. Or on plaques in churches, soup kitchens, hospitals, etc. ❤️
I do get accused of writing “Greeting card” poetry, but I am happy to wear that label if it means that people actually read it!
Excellent! This piece reminds me of some of the poems in your book, “All Creatures, Mostly Small.”
Note to Pastor Pete followers: you can find this book of poems on Amazon. It’s a great read!
Thank you for your kind words as well as a plug for the book! Have a Merry Christmas Dave! Here is the link for All Creatures Mostly Small https://www.amazon.com/dp/B098R29KZM
I’m glad you shared the link, because I couldn’t figure out how to.😊
