Crystal, brass, copper and lace
Things of beauty and stance
Each item sitting in it’s place
Waiting... An appreciative glance
Sparkling, shining...Reflecting sun
Material things, held so dear
Yet...After all is said and done
Will it matter... That they are there
Things, showing a status...In life
What kind of car, how big a house
Even judging a husband or a wife
A value...Placed on A spouse
These things aren't so important.....
It's what's in your heart and mind
Not a showcase..Full of riches
But....Love and spirit that's kind
If you have the "Fruits of the Spirit"
Yet.... Have nothing of value to display
Your richer by far, in the bargain...
For no one.... Can take that away!
