BLESSED ARE THEY
by Roxanne DeWinter, 2001

Blessed Are They
who despite their own strife,
do whatever is needed
to save one more life.

Blessed Are They
who make it their choice
to look after the innocent
ones with no voice.

Blessed Are They
who with patience and care
show the hurt and abandoned
that someone is there.

Blessed Are They
who remain in the fight
as a soul that they've loved
slips away in the night....

Blessed Are They
who give all that they know,
then surrender their "children"
and watch as they go...

And Blessed Are They
who by deed make it known,
that by saving these lives,

we are saving our own.....
