Chilly winter breeze
Soft morning glow to please
Warm woolens caressing the bodies
Cozy warmth of the house
Comfortable leather chair to sink into
Hot coffee in hand
Christmas songs playing in the background
Days come and go
Soon it will be Christmas time
Then a sweet farewell to the old year
Will mark the beginning of a new year
I want everything –
Sun, moon and stars,
Sapphire, rubies and gold,
Money lots of it, to buy it all.
Then, I realize that I can’t buy everything,
So I want nothing.
As desires are hard to get rid of,
It seems I still want a few things –
Cheerful smiles, friendly hugs, token of love,
Beauty sleep, healthy food to eat and a protective den to keep me safe.
Nothing – a problem, as you don’t have a thing.
Everything too is a problem, as ego seeps in.
With the ever growing desires dwelling in mind,
Contentment is always hard to find.
