Love Poem: EVERYTHING HE EVER WANTED

EVERYTHING HE EVER WANTED

He grew up a happy child
and without an ounce of greed
he’d look around at his world and think…“I have everything I need.”

“I have a home, and food and toys…
what more do I require?
I have a loving family…What more could I desire?

And on the day he married
without an ounce of greed
he looked around his world and thought,…“I have everything I need.”

“I have my family’s encouragement…
What more do I require?
I have a wife who I love and who loves me…What more could I desire.”

And when they were blessed with children
without an ounce of greed
he looked around his world and thought…“I have everything I need.”

“I have the joy and laughter of children…
What more do I require?
I have a family who I love and who loves me…What more could I desire?”

And when they were blessed with grandchildren
without an ounce of greed
he looked around at his world and thought…“I have everything I need.”

“I have grandchildren who smile when they see me
What more do I require
I have grandchildren who I can spoil……What more could I desire?”

That happy child grew into an happy old man
and without an ounce of greed
He looks around his world and thinks
“I have everything I need.”

“How could I have known,” he wonders
as his smile remains…undaunted
“that everything I ever needed
would be everything I ever wanted."
