Who’s that soul inside the doorway?
What’s he doing there alone?
Is he sleeping… waiting… crying?
Or just chatting on the phone?

Is he hungry… thirsty… cold?
Wondering when the sun will shine?
Is he stranger, friend… or foe?
Is he hurting? Doing fine?

Do you stop to ask the question,
“S’cuse, me, sir. Are you okay?”
Or do you simply press along?
So many ops… so fleeting day…
