My True Treasure

Updated on August 2, 2012

My True Treasure

I've been dreaming of some money
And all the pain it brings

I don't seek wealth and riches
New cars and diamond rings

But each week I buy a ticket
Make wishes, dreams and hope

Address it to your mother
In a lucky envelope

And if the God's can hear me
Through my praying and the tears
They'll give us six kind numbers
to wash away our fear

Then I'll post it to your mother
when you are in my care
she can have the whole dam thing
And be a millionaire

      You are a wonderful father :-) Your poems will mean so much to her; they express pain but they also demonstrate your profound devotion to her.

      Thank you , she truly is my whole wide world and more. She is the inspiration for most of my poems on here and I write them so she will remember how we love each other at this stage in her life . These are such precious times which have also been very hard on us both but I want her to know how I feel when she grows up.

      I love the rhythm in this and the pure emotion. The child is absolutely adorable!
