What's our most prized possession
What should matter to us most?
Yet those that have often take for granted,
Those that don't - struggle without -
Sometimes in denial -
Sometimes chasing worldly goods in lieu.

Will your bank balance keep you company -
Lifting your spirits when you feel low?
Yet many are prepared
To devote nearly all their time to work.
Will the new Mercedes -
Help you out when you are sick?
Yet many judge their worth -
By their material possessions.

It's the people in our lives
That make it worth our while.
Life is a long and winding road
With many twists and turns.
It is much harder to travel -
If we try to travel alone.

Appreciate your friends -
Help them when they're down.
Don't take them for granted -
They appreciate us -
If we appreciate them.
Many people pass through our lives -
We can learn from all of them.

Always make time for your friends -
You won't miss them 'till they're gone.
