Treasured Past

Treasured Past

A sailor had once sailed the sea,
in search of gold and treasure.
A bounty rich as there could be,
to great to have a measure.

He looked to the east and to the west,
in search of what was lost.
Left behind, all he had,
unaware of the hidden cost.

He left behind his treasured past,
his future had slipped his hand.
His horrid journey just begun.
the quest to understand.

All the silver, all the gold,
or any other riches to find.
Cannot replace, the tender grace,
of having peace of mind.

For any quest for happiness,
is laden with courses to chart.
No gold or silver can compare,
to the riches felt within the heart.

( Thanks for help with the title to Mervin )

No gold or silver can compare,
to the riches felt within the heart.


So many rich folk aren't happy
so I suppose it's not the dollar's fault.
Perhaps their heart is dusted and empty
though treasures fill their vault!
