’81

It was late in ’81
Not much heat left in the sun
Lots of snow upon the ground
and lots of silence all around
I walked quickly down the street
Thought of food and thought of heat
I was tired and I was cold
and I was lonely, feeling old
Then you turned and smiled at me
Stepped right up, encouraged me
I felt the love within your heart
and knew you cared right from the start
I look back and feel the cold
When I was lonely, feeling old
I ate the food that you gave me
and felt the hope you gave to me
It was back in ’81
Not much heat left in the sun
But even to this very day
I feel the difference that you made
