A  chest full of treasures
Diamond, rubies unturned
Slivering sliver
Glistening pearls
Sapphires and emeralds
Sparkling so bright
Ambers and topaz
A beautiful sight.

But none of these treasures
So rare and so bold
I do not covet
Have no wish to hold
For I know that these jewels
Hold no bounty for me
I have treasures immeasurable
God gave me for free.

The treasure of memory
Of people long gone
Who touched my life gently
With the warmth of the sun
Of hearing a baby
Cry for the first time
Heralding their entrance
To this world so sublime

The feeling of sunrays
Bleaching my bones
The coldness of icicles
And soft fallen snow
The sound of the sea
Breaking roughly on shore
The roar of the wind
The light in a storm.

For my fathers my diamond
My mother my pearl
And though I can't see them
I know that their there
My family my treasure
Who without I would fail
My husband my anchor
The wind in my sail.

    Carol, I say with sincerity, you have a wonderful talent in your poetry and I am truly enjoying all. Can't wait till you write more. You took treasures and wove them into your family beautifully.
