I'm wealthy indeed, yes, I've known great gain
For I've known great love and, of course, some pain
But it's only shown what the love is worth
...The greatest treasure in all the earth.

Oh, I've been blest and, yes, I'm wealthier
Than Donald Trump, any Rockefeller      
For I've had love of far greater worth
...Than all the riches in all the earth.

Yes, I've known great love beyond all measure
Worth much more that any earthly treasure
And too, some pain, these days on earth
...It's only shown what my treasure's worth.

You see, you're just a pauper without love
Yes, without this gold that I'm speaking of
For all your wealth is of no avail
...You can't buy something that's not for sale.

Yes, I've known some pain in my days on earth
...But it's only shown what my gold is worth.

BRAVO!!!!  Alright Denise! That nailed it! Love it, love it!

 <*\\\><
Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

"you can't buy something that's not for sale".  
The most important things in life aren't things and cannot be bought or sold.
Denise, your poem expresses this so well.

The "worth" of love we can be best explained with thoughts such as yours.  Splendedly done.
