where are you now
I’ve forgotten the way
and how far the fall from believing
how tender the heart
how deep run the blues –
and eyes to surrender a soul
with no thought to pain
no thought to hurting –
you’ll take what you need
when you do
the light that you leave
fills the sky of your parting
and I am come home
when I remember
your smile

By its very nature, homelessness is impossible to measure with 100% accuracy. 
More important than knowing the precise number of people who
experience homelessness (or who we can blame)
is our progress in ending it. Recent studies

suggest that the United States generates homelessness at a much higher rate
than previously thought.

Our task in ending homelessness is thus more important
now than ever.
