    Were I to die tomorrow, would I go
    Content with how I’ve lived and what I’ve done,
    Or would I have regrets there’s less to show
    Of victory for all my races won?

    Or is life less about accomplishment
    By racking winnings up on the Big Board,
    And more about discovering content
    Through love, our life’s most glorious reward?

    The answer is self-evident to those
    Who know compassion, sympathy and care
    As gifts from others, which make them disclose
    The same solicitude, to give and share.

         It’s not what we acquire that makes life good,
         But serving others as we know we should.
