There are treasures in life,
                  but owners are few
          Of money and power
                  to buy things brand new.
          Yet you can be wealthy
                  and feel regal too,
          If you will just look
                  for the treasures in you.
          These treasures in life
                  are not hard to find
          When you look in your heart,
                  your soul, and your mind.
          For when you are willing
                  to share what's within,
          Your fervent search
                  for riches will end.
          The joy and the laughter,
                  the smile that you bring;
          The heart unafraid
                  to love and to sing;
          The hand always willing
                  to help those in need;
          Ones quick to reach out,
                  to labor and feed.
          So thank you for sharing
                  these great gifts inside;
          The caring, the cheering,
                  the hug when one cried.
          Thanks for the energy,
                  encouragement too,
          And thank you for sharing
                  the treasures in you.
