The Greatest Gift

You may be a talented woman or man
Quite wealthy from your gifts with many a fan
One often in the news many you do impress
But your life is the greatest gift that you possess

In a Human World where success is seen as the in thing
Your praises your admirers in their thousands do sing
But there is one gift far greater than money or fame
A gift that is precious and life is it's name

The religious zealots and patriots of their heroes may brag
Who have died for their god and their country's flag
But when their praises are spoken of the dead do not hear
That they are past all feelings is obviously clear

The longest lived human life in time not a long span
So live and try to enjoy life for as long as you can
Life is the greatest gift you have you will die soon enough
And live in hope for better though times on you may be tough

You may be quite gifted looked on as a great
A person that others wish to celebrate
With your talents the impressionable masses you impress
But your life is the greatest gift that you possess.
