Ultimate Wealth - Poem by Amitava Sur

A life being barred from love, the gem,
Is a life like living in a grave yard's den.
A tycoon, you may be having wealth like dirt,
Owning a gold mine or a ranch.
You may be a mighty wealthy knight
Or else a big mafia or a Don!
But if you've no love to receive or give,
Having everything else in your grip, though
You're the poorest for sure it is.
Being deserted from love in your life,
All your pride and envy you boast,
Are meaningless and stale.
No other form of any fortune
Can compensate the absence of love.

Remember, love is a bliss and love is all,
The fulfillment of a life,
The finest flower in the life's garden,
That is love, the pristine divine.
Amitava. (1.09.18)

    'No other form of any fortune
    Can compensate the absence of love.' - This is so true! Entirely agree!
    Love, the ultimate wealth, has been thought of and described in this short poem so beautifully! The absence of this wealth leaves us a pauper, however wealthy we may otherwise be!
    Well done, Amitava!

    A very inspiring and beautiful poem about having everything except for love, life isn't really
    worth living is it? Without love there is no meaning in our lives, no one to share our secrets
    and unconditional love with. Just empty riches and things that give nothing in return.

    Thank you for sharing this great poem, Little One!

    if anyone has no love to receive or give
    mafia, don, tycoon, rich all are poor
    poor is poor
    pride, envy, happiness, boast all are meaningless
    without love everything is nothing!
