Treasures in My Heart

Grant me one more moment

to wrap my arms around

those who make my soul

feel complete,

let me touch each one of them

with all the love hiding inside my heart.


Like my precious pets

who bring me joy,

putting on a cartoon show

or curling up beside me.


Or my heartthrob

who brings me happiness,

with each trivial second

we share together.


Or family members

who stand in my corner

when life challenges my every step.


Let them understand the deep connection

constantly tapping away inside my heart,

full of admiration and respect

with enough love for each of them.


Trusting I will hold these treasures

close to my heart,

in this new space of infinity

where tomorrow doesn’t exist.

"If Tomorrow Never Comes - by Garth Brooks"

Bible Scripture

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

(Matthew 6:21)
