Your Greatest Gift

On the ladder of success you may have climbed quite far
But you are not as important as you think that you are
For when the greatest gift you possess from you has gone
On the day you stop breating life will go on

For your material wealth you others may admire
And for to be like you they well may desire
But since the accumulation of material things a favorite form of success
The impressionable majority are not hard to impress

In high class restaurants with your wealthy mates you socialize and dine
And wash your food down with expensive wine
Money and business your favorite topic of the day
The things that does speak every language as some like to say

One of the wealthiest people in the big town
Your material successes your great claim to renown
Your wife and son and daughter both in their early twenties each have their own big company car
There are not many people as wealthy as you are

Of the material things of life you will never be in need
The power of making large sums of money is a great gift indeed
You have climbed high on the ladder of material success
But your life is the greatest gift that you possess.
