Emptiness


even if I have traveled around the world
and stayed in palaces made of gold

even if I owned banks and shopped in malls
and ate in places everyone had told
and owned any rich man hold

none of these will ever make me bold
to declare
that i am happy and old

not unless
you rest in this empty heart's abode
