Many People measure their
earthly fortunes by mere,
tangible material gain.
They treasure their earthly dollars
as their successful weather vanes.
But, the riches i gather
and treasure most of all,
are the real, genuine pleasures,
i'm fortunate to find,
after i do a real kind deed,
for my fellow man.
For after all,
it's kind thoughts and deeds,
that really make this old world go.
Every single day of my earthly life,
my spiritual coffers grow,
each time i lend a
genuine helping hand,
to someone i may or may not know.
Then my spiritual riches i keep,
as memories i most treasure.
By the genuine pleasures i reap,
my earthly fortune is actually
measured by the
people i make happy,
not by the earthly dollars i keep.
