Theres No Love When Money Is All You Think Of

Money buys happiness So they say But it takes a lot away When your working all the time You’ll look up one day and find There’s so much life that has past The years are going by so fast Money’s making your world cold Without a love to kiss and hold Or a little one that needs A daddy, not a man of greed Stop and look into their eyes And you’ll finally realize A balance needs to be found Before they put you in the ground On your stone no one will see Money does not make you happy

I agree with you 100% on this. There is nothing wrong with having money. It is not money the root of all evil. It is the love for money that messes up a person's life. Our family is the most precious treasure we can have - if we can keep it together. May god fill your life with blessings.... Lucilla

The curse of the capitalist nation. There are many great forms of wealth. Money is not high on the list. Very well done, Robin.... Robert.

Oh So true Robin I am sure there are many people who can relate to this. Sadly bills have to be paid and sometimes that can mean families are apart for months on end - no amount of money can make up for missing your child's first words/steps/ smile etc - sad world for us and our children. Hugs as ever this is an excellent heartfelt write. Jan xxx
