Life's Golden Nuggets

A friendly word that sparks a little hope
A hand to hold when on the downward slope

Care and love expressed in warm embrace
Makes light the obstacles in life one has to face

Someone there to listen and to share
When times are dark and all seems so unfair

To stand together in sun and sometimes rain
A shoulder there to cry on when there is pain

Yes, Life's golden little nuggets do not come
In bars of gold, but in small things their worth become.

    You know the essence of a well lived life Cynthia.
    It's not wealth or power.
    It's the no cost smile, the affordable touch, the warm embrace that doesn't have a price, the light of God that radiates a face and a poem that reaches the soul.
