You Are Rich If You Are Loved

Surrounded by those who love me
Are the only riches I will ever desire
Watching our young children playing
Fills my heart with a loving fire.

Precious moments we share together
I will enjoy each one as long as I can
Before I realize it our children will be grown
These cherished moments will never  return again.

For me material things don't mean a thing
Love from friends and family are good enough for me
Pots of gold at the end of rainbows I'll never seek
The way things are I am happy as anyone could be.

You are rich if you are loved....
