I May Look Like A Beggar



                                                        I may look like a beggar
                                                        with no wealth of my own
                                                        I have riches far greater
                                                        in my heart there's a song

                                                        Good health can't be measured
                                                        by silver and gold
                                                        or the love of family
                                                        can't be bought or sold

                                                        Friends are the flowers
                                                        that bloom in my heart
                                                        each day that I'm given
                                                        is a brand new start

                                                       To glimpse the beauty
                                                       this world has to give
                                                       or the moments to treasure
                                                       of being able to give

                                                       Each sunrise and sunset
                                                       is proof without a doubt
                                                       a power greater than me
                                                       made it all come about

                                                      Happiness is great riches
                                                      of a far lasting kind
                                                      not something to search for
                                                      and seldom ever find

                                                      So it's not what you see
                                                      in the clothes that I wear
                                                      there's riches in my heart
                                                      and nothing can compare

                                                      I may look like a beggar
                                                      but I'm rich as a queen
                                                      what more could I ask for
                                                      I have everything

  2. Oh Susie,
    That is one of the most beautiful things that I've ever read. It really touched my heart. Happiness is by far a greater gift than riches, and sometimes we all forget that. I loved your precious poem.

  9. I love this...and riches are, the love of a family. How many have the money but not the love. There are many families in poverty stricken families that would look at what you and I have, and call us rich... I love your heart Susie, it is very rich and full of goodness. xxxxxxx
