We measure the success in life,
Not by the material possessions we collect,
But by the good natured people
That we surround ourselves with.
We measure our understanding of life,
Not by the smiles that we have given,
But by the tears that we have attempted
To selflessly collect for those we love.
We measure the wisdom of life,
Not by the things we think we know,
But the lessons in life
That we strive tenaciously to learn.
We measure the true living of life,
Not by the many things that we do,
But the love we have given
And the love we've been open to receiving.
