Memory

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

What need have I for coins of Gold

"



Daughter Aris and I

 

 


The world has riches oh so rare

but shares them only with a few

What I love is worth so much more

         they are recollections of you         

 

I need so few of this world's goods

having all your thoughts, ways and deeds

They lift my soul to the heavens

where I plant love's garden of seeds

 

Through your eyes I have seen wonders

so numerous I can't count

But oh such beauty none the less

before God I could not recount

 

What need have I for coins of gold

they can't buy what my eyes can see

My treasures lie within your smiles

stamped in the mint of memory

Dear Lord, this was so beautiful I swear it touched my soul. Every line is like a burst of overwhelming beauty the not only encourages but pushes and tugs at the reader to read on and crave more. Honestly, I was breathless by the end of it, my eyes were absorbed by each word as was the rest of being, reading this was an experience I wouldn't mind having a few hundred times more. Thank you for sharing.

This piece is so beautiful, it moved me to tears while I was reading it. It has an elegance to it. Not only that, but I like how your writing style has a beautiful fanciness to it. This piece of writing has the beauty and elegance of lace.

It's so easy for people to get caught up in the pursuit of material wealth and loose sight of the true wealth of human experience. You beautifully call the mind back to what our only real treasures should and can ever be.

NOTES:
"…this [world's] goods"
"…plant [love's] garden…"
"My treasure [lays]…"
