More Than Gold

What is the worth of a long, long life
If when that long life ends
One has more than enough of earthly wares
But is devoid of friends?

When I am called before the Lord
To kneel at his Holy Throne,
I hope to report I have treasured love
Over anything else I may own.

The love of family and friends
Is a treasure beyond compare.
The longest of lives would pass unmarked
Without family and friends who care.

Joyce, your words are pure gold ~ just like your heart!

You must be a very 'wealthy' woman!

Sending lots of love and affection,

How very true are your wise words.  Valued friends cannot be purchased, so having them reflects the real you!  You are a treasure beyond not only funds, but words.

Thank you for this lovely piece.

God bless,
Rae

Joyce,

A very wise and beautifully expressed poem and I do agree with you whole heartedly that it's very very true what you’ve written in that, far beyond what this world can ever offer us as far as the material things, Friends and Family truly truly are the Greatest of All Treasures. Amen.

Thanks for sharing and God bless,

-Bob

Dearest Joyce,

Such a nice and lovely poem to read. It's really true. Friends, family and a great relationship with others is more than material things.

I'll wait for your other poems to be posted then.

God Bless!

Amen to the truth
Unfortunately many people treasure earthly goods more than love.
It's good for all of us to be reminded, and nice to read the message in such a beautiful poem
I can see your life is rich and full
Take care
Love, Liz

A sweet and lovely piece; without friends, we are nothing, especially when we don't have Christ within our circle of life; simply wonderful! --Joe

An enjoyable piece and reminder; there's so much more to life than g-o-l-d; nicely written.
