Today I sit waiting delivery certain
All of my stuff sofa chest curtain
Suddenly what I have been longing for
Will all be coming right through the door
All sorts of material things will arrive
Candles book cases tapes to help me thrive
Sweaters and shoes and coats galore
After being without I can’t wait any more
Amazing somehow these things we “need”
Possessions we covet drive many deeds
Suddenly they don’t mean very much
As we gain perspective wisdom and such
Things can’t respond relate or give warmth
They cannot comfort or buffer a storm
Soon all their shine becomes very dull
Since they can’t engage they don’t have much pull
When you reflect on what sustains
You realize possessions never maintain
People who populate filling your life
They are your treasure gems that midwife
What are your most valued treasures?
What have you been investing in?
How have your priorities around relationships developed?
What gets you out of bed each morning? Why?
