Worth is not found in what we hold

Not seen in our vaults of silver and gold

Our worth is found in how we live

The strength to let go, the power to give


And when the time comes, as it must

For our spirit to leave and body to dust

When our souls break free of this earth

The love we shared is our only worth

        Thank you Brad. I appreciate the love and am sending more back at ya. It truly is like one day runs into the next for the most part. I am grateful for this community. Writing gives me something constructive to do as I really don’t go anywhere. There is only so much cooking and cleaning you can do. I love to write and read my friends work. I am truly grateful for meeting all the talented and kind people I have met. I have learned a lot from you too. Be safe. Love ❤️ Jonikins
