Tomorrow I could be that man - by Jeff Briggs

Homelessness can happen to anyone!

There he stands, a broken man

Wondering what his next move should be

All his world has fallen down

Now he wears an angry frown

All he needs is a helping hand

And I will do this if I can

For tomorrow I could be that man

There alone in a world of his own

Wondering when his next meal will come

He once had three meals a day

But now his bones show with decay

All he needs is a helping hand

And I will do this if I can

for tomorrow I could be that man

In a doorway, where the bitter winds play

Wondering if he'll ever get to sleep

Wraps himself in a cardboard box

Toes poking out of his holey socks

All he needs is a helping hand

And I will do this if  I can

For tomorrow I could be that man

 

They all pass him by, they don't hear his cry

They don't even notice him at all

He's still young, he won't grow old

And as the grave he will turn cold

All he needed was a helping hand

But its too late to say 'if I can'

For today I would be that man
