A gift, A life, A joy

A gift, A life, A joy

A tree sent fruit to eat
A lover sent joy into heart
A nd neither can be beat
A nd not even with a head start

A cloud gave needed shade
A life so joyously born
A God heaven in glory made
A love can be so, so sadly torn

A home gives sweet repose
A family grows majestic love
A doration grows and grows
A spirit rests in blue sky above

A head are some fine gifts
A wine finds greatness in age
A union of hearts so uplifts
A fool ruins all in jealous rage

A life sent to save mankind
A gift of love so cherished
A wife meant to be mine
A future intended to never perish

20 lines to be kind I wrote once.
20 lines to inspire others I write now
This on a glorious and inspiring night...
For what are we if we fail to seek success 
for others as well as ourselves?

Hi Robert, This is a gem about (as I read it) unselfishness, gratitude, the appreciation for the "details" in life........... You note at the end, is a joy to read as well, esp. the last lines.............How I wish more of us would ask that question, reflect upon it and act accordingly.......... Thank you!
