Listen to "What Counts the Most"

What Counts the Most

Poems Being human explains why
We make mistakes
Learning from it teaches us
What it takes

Disappointment comes
If we concentrate
On what we do not have

Life can be much better
When we appreciate
What we do have

What counts the most
Is the gift of life
To live it well
Without any strife

To have someone
Who treasures you
To give them love
Is what we do

Your birth is something
To be treasured
Love for you
Cannot be measured
