THE GOOD LIFE
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.
