Life’s Richest Treasure--By Erich J. Goller--United States

Life’s Richest Treasure

Within a love that knows no bounds or heights
It is life’s richest treasure
With beauty and pleasure

With two hearts mending
leading to a happy place
forever with joy
longing for your hand to hold
it is love that fulfills life

where red roses climb
with golden rays of sunlight
bright blue sky above

we shall always share
memories as twilight falls
gleaming in the sky
