The greatest treasure

The sum total of it all

To gather in every pebble

Thrown into every pond

To call back every ripple ever made

To reach the other side and find

Like feathers blown in the wind

Did they land on wasted ground

Or carried on eternal wings 

To find their resting place

To be emptied out

Then filled once more

To be lost then found again

To continue to fight to the finish line

With the banner of love held high

To my fleeting breath

And my final day

Your love will

Hold me

Carry me

Keep me

Always remaining in me

As the greatest treasure 

Of my heart and soul

As the greatest treasure of all
