What Could It Be

A cool breeze is

Touching my face

As I stand

On a sandy dune

Above my favorite

Ocean shore.

I'm sensing a warmth

Coming from deep

Inside my heart

Telling me

My life is complete

I need nothing more.

During these

Special moments alone

I realize

Life on earth

Is temporary

And

I'm thankful

For each

Precious moment

God has given me.

The earthly treasures

I value

Are my family

And friends

Who love me

Anything greater

I wonder

What could it be.
