Irrelevant - Poem by Elizabeth Ungemach

Look around… what do you see?
A clear, blue lake?
A willow tree
You might just spot a soaring eagle flying high and free
Or maybe just a simple finch chirping loud with glee
Perhaps you see a picture in the floating clouds above
While listening to the soft and peaceful singing of a dove
These are things we take for granted each and every day
Doing anything we please and always getting our own way
Take a moment… close your eyes… and think of all you own
Nice clothes, a car, a cell phone, a computer, and a home
You may have a beloved pet that keeps you warm at night
Who loves and comforts you and lets you know that it’s all right
But most off all you have a family, no matter how big or small
People who look out for you and catch you when you fall
This is the true gift in life
Not something you can buy
It’s the only thing you’re born with
And take with you when you die
As they say: “The greatest things in life and free and heaven sent”
And all material possessions are just… irrelevant
