What is wealth but something tangible

that creates a wall

that cannot be breached

by love?

What need have I of money

when all that I need

is within your eyes

your heart

your hands?

give me instead

the wealth of your love

the richness of your kiss

the generosity of your touch

holding me close.

I need not your money.

I will turn it down

if offered.

I want to be

who I am becoming.


and strong

offer me not monetary support

offer instead

emotional support


and comfort.

I will find my own way

I ask only

for what wealth

you have within your heart

to offer,

with that

I will be greatly blessed

with a richness

and comfort

that money

in it’s cold lack of feeling

could never hope to give

or convey,

the way one look in your loving eye


true love
