Prompt ~ THE BEST OF THE BEST

THE BEST OF THE BEST

by John Yeo



The question is… “What do I want?”
This was never going to be easy,
There are so many turns in most of life,
What I want must fill a need for me!
Interpreting that need isn’t easy.

~

Do I want an end to trouble and strife?
This was never going to be easy.
That question still makes me uneasy.

Peace? Wealth? A healthy calm goodlife?
What I want must fill a need for me!

~

As I grow older and think carefully,
My mind drifts with worldly cares rife.
This was never going to be easy.
I narrow my want and thinking deeply,
Am I getting selfish to include my wife?

~

I want her to be completely happy

Never want for anything all her life.
Love and Peace with good health 

Free from pain and troublesome strife 

Enjoying the best of the best with me

~

What I want must fulfil a need for me.
This was never going to,be easy,
