Faith and Joy

I hear his voice coming through the night. 
When the world around me is getting ready to turn in for the night.

Singing songs of gospel. 
A rich voice from a man in 
poverty and despair.

People toss coins down to the street 
and in between the sweet melody 
his "thank you" , he does repeat.

His voice trails off. 
He is an old man, slightly 
crooked as he moves on.

I see his shadow in the street light. 
Where does he go when his singing is done?

Singer of the night. 
With his faith in God 
and joyous voice.

I lived in a flat (apartment) for a couple of years. Every night this old man would stand outside the various blocks of flats singing. People used to throw money down to him. He had an amazing voice, I'll never forget it

I like a poem like this which brings its scene to my mind. There is so much life in this one, and even the question sets me wondering along with it, "Where does he go?"
Maybe He embodies the song of God that is all around us, but often unheard by the masses.
Smiling in enjoyment,
Connie
