My Treasure

My treasure chest is filled with you
You are the stars in the night sky
The one who takes my breath away
Seeing you I let out a sigh

I searched the world to find you
All along you were hidden in my heart
Deeply buried in the centre of me
The one destined to set me free

Each kiss a diamond set in gold
You add daily to my treasures
You are my everything
My source of wealth and pleasures

I am the richest of all men
Blessed beyond any king
My treasure chest filled with you
With your love my soul has wings

I sit here thankful for the gift of you
At times i'm lost for words to say
My pot of gold at rainbows end
You still take my breath away

    I just know that this will do great in the contest. Is this just a poem, or is it your real life? There is a saying - When we lose our father - we lose our pride - When we lose our mother - we lose our treasure.Thanks for sharing...... Lucilla

    Fortunately for me my treasure is my wife Mary. As long as we are together I am truly a wealthy man. My Heavenly Father has been very generous to me. Thanks for commenting.

    Beautiful Richard....If every husband said these words to his wife on a daily basis and then lived it out in actions....we would see less of the brokenness we see today. Wonderful piece! I applaud you!

    And this is how "Men" are truly defined. When they look not at the problems of the world nor of themselves, but the resolutions. The answers. I have too much to say to this. Color me inspired...
