Contentment

A roof over my head, dinner on my plate

Friends at my doorstep, no one to hate

He has given me enough, I shall not Want

Two innocent rosebuds, fresh as the day

Young and impressionable, to show me the Way

He has given me enough, I shall not Want.

Wealth in sufficient measure has been granted

Though, not always giving me what I wanted

He has given me enough, I shall not Want.

A robust shelter for the soul, fit and well

But when my time may come, I cannot tell

He has given me enough, I shall not Want.

A pillar of strength she is to me,

With me during happiness and misery

He has given me enough, I shall not Want.

An honest way to earn my livelihood

Fulfilling my duties as best as I should

He has given me enough, I shall not Want.

A way with words, to lighten the mind

A path I must take care to find

He has given me enough, I shall not Want.

The material and the mundane, I have in plenty

Albeit, with more cares than when I was twenty

He has given me enough, I shall not Want.

To seek , to tame and to subdue

This is my goal, to my own self be true

He has given me enough, I shall not Want.

Whenever in doubt, or envious of the world around

I look within and to the joys I have found

He has given me enough, I shall not Want.
