I Met A Friend Today


On the street today I saw a friend I never knew before
A tattered shirt and ragged pants set him apart once more,
The people there they pass him by as though he don't exist
But underneath that shaggy coat I knew I'd met a friend
He grinned at me, he tipped his hat, I offered him some lunch,
 A grin as big as Cheshire cat as he said thanks a bunch,
I watched him saunter down the street and he vanished out of sight,
Underneath my breath I said a prayer that he'll be safe tonight.
