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.

I like it. it is a good reminder of what is really treasure. I would have taken out the word Yet in the fourth line. It flows better.

Beautiful.. you have such a great flow, rhythm and rhyme.. that it just flows into one's heart and mind while reading. This one .. speaks of the greater things in life.. not money.. not investments... but people and memories.. no money can buy those things.. nor touch our hearts. Truly a great piece of magnetic and positive poetry! I understand exactly what Martin See says.. and while we do need money and some material things to live.. it's important to prioritize.. knowing the difference between needs and wants! Giving is so much nicer I find.. to get a smile from someone is soooo deep and moving to me when it's someone special.. like my children!

Outstanding! Another Magnificent work of poetic art! The clock inside the eye in the picture really pronounces this piece. It's a statement all it's own.

the line, "my riches lie in your smile, stamped in the mint of my memory." is so true for some of us who seek the more important thngs in life, not simply the materialism, consumerism and captalistic world that we have come to see exists...to enjoy simple pleasures and ways is not being a simpleton, rather is to have the riches of the world at your feet.
