As beautiful as this

As beautiful as this.

What could there be
As beautiful as this?
What could there be could give to me
This heart brim filled with bliss?
It didn’t come from beauty
It is beauty, itself
What could there be
That could give me so much wealth.

I’m sitting here
I’ve got nowhere to go
Got all I’ve ever wanted
I’ve found that inner glow
You tell me you’ve got riches
Foolish look upon your face
But have you got the wisdom?
Have you got the grace?

What could there be
Could erase such loveliness
What is there in this big wide world?
I really must confess
That all this bliss within my being
There’s naught worth more than this
I have everything I want
That’s just the way it is.

    Thank you Cheri, for your kind comments. When I immigrated from London to Australia, I spent over four weeks at sea, and it was absolutely wonderful. Only cost me Ten pound as that's all we paid to come and live here. I think I am a very lucky man...peter

    if only most felt this way or even understood how it can be, once happiness is found it allows you to open the gates of inner peace...well stated poem my friend, one must fail to gain a degree in wisdom
