Things That Really Count - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion
Today think how really rich you are,
Your life is so precious;
Though not few fall into the grave,
Yours is there to live as virtuous.
Don't forget them of great worth,
Your family is so priceless;
They are there to support you
When things get worse in distress.
Every minute and every second
Of your time is as valuable as gold;
Let it not be wasted at summertime,
Use it before the weather gets cold.
Look at the mirror and see for yourself
The wonderful reflection of your health;
Though thousands even millions get sick,
Your strength projects another wealth.
Salvation is the greatest treasure of all,
For it is important beyond any amount;
So I pray, may you always be rich
In these things, that really count.
