Thought for the Month – My Gift To You

By Yolanda Cohen

I could not give you a mansion bold
I could not give you your weight in pure gold
No diamonds could show you the love I hold
That has so much value, it can never be told

What I gave you my children, was a prayer for each day
For never a cloud to darken your way
Faith for the future, cheerful and bright
For love of God and all that is right

Strength for each burden along the way
A smile on your face at the end of each day
For nights of rest and peace sublime
Happiness until the end of time

For health all your life, a treasure to keep
And beautiful flowers surrounding your feet
Love for one another and peace of mind
Ability to learn, to seek and to find

These gifts, more than money
Are treasures to hold
For the best things in life
Are not bought or sold
