A stranger touched my heart with just one word
pleading eyes hiding the shame
that hunger makes easy to swallow
making vanity look as hollow
and just absurd.
A stranger is a stranger just the same
but this one made me pause
in the comfort of my day
and let a moment become the judge
for all my shame
that easy hides when I misjudge
a pleading stranger.
A stranger touched my heart and walked away.
