I AM NOT A RICH MAN
BUT RICH I AM
I do not own a home or a treasure chest of gold,
Stocks and bonds are few, diamonds are a little too.
I am not a rich man as calculated by statistics and daily man,
A special car or a vacation home does not show of my value,
I am not a rich man, estimated by paper money or material things.
But rich I am, If life is valued in a simple way, just a regular day,
These things are free but of gold bars to me, listen to what makes a rich man.
If love is in your day then rich you are in a most special way,
I can walk and see with my every day, I breathe freely, I’m okay.
A roof over my head, clothes on my back, never to bed am I hungry,
So much can cost money, beauty, staying healthy, a song you sing is free,
But rich I am, with that which is mine and my thoughts every way.
