People hurrying, bundled,
running to the warmth of their homes.
But there are those without homes.
I wonder about the homeless;
I hope they will find shelter tonight.
Already this year,
six people in Baltimore have lost their lives
because of the bitter cold.
On this Valentine’s Day,
my heart breaks to think of it.
What can I do now but send metta?
May all beings be safe
May all beings be free from suffering
May all beings have mental and physical happiness.
May all beings be at ease.
May all beings be happy.
