The Things I Treasure
Family and lifelong friends
Whose love prevails and never ends.
A vivid blue and warm day
Where glowing sunshine lights the way.
A new path in life; a new road to adventure
And where it might lead I can only wonder.
Sweet melodious birdsong filling the breeze
As the feathered carolers perched in the lofty trees.
Meadows and wildflowers I do adore;
Black-eyed Susans, daisies and more.
Strolling through the forest of towering trees
Oh how Spring gives birth to such emerald beauty.
A quiet, rainy day when I rest inside
Reading and writing to my heart’s delight.
Returning home and walking down memory lane;
Visiting loved ones and close friends.
Walking on the beach and feeling the spray of the sea;
Feeling the sand surround and envelop my bare feet.
Sitting at the park and listening to the whispering wind
Sifting through the branches; softly heard but not seen.
In deep conversation with a close friend
In whom my quiet trust will never end.
Seeing a lemon-tinted sunrise in the early morning
And a glowing orange sunset in the warm evening.
Have the love of Jesus residing in my heart wiping away my sorrows
As he instills hope for today, through the night, and tomorrow.
