My Treasure Box ~ By: Euris Bryant




My Treasure Box


As I look upon the world today, 
I see many things great and small.
 
Yet all are valued in a different way,
 
And I know I cannot have them all.
 

But from these things I must choose,
 
The things that matter most to me,
 
And keep them always never to lose,
 
That is why I must select them carefully.
 

I stand as with a treasure box to fill,
 
And in it I am going to place,
 
That which I choose with my own free will,
 
Because my own life I must face.
 

I see great wealth, houses, and lands,
 
Is this what I want may I ask?
 
These things fade with man's plans,
 
I must choose that which will last.
 

Into my box says my will,
 
Place my heart so valuable to me.
 
The other space I will fill,
 
With faith, hope and charity.
 

In a blanket of truth my box will always be,
 
And upon it I am going to write:
 
"These are the things that matter most to me.
 
Whether in the day or in the night."
 

I hold my treasure box very carefully,
 
And say to Almighty God so true,
 
Take this box and what's left of me,
 
Dear God, I give it all to you.
