The Gift of Myself

I am not worth much
in the monetary sense
my bankbook needs
an iron pill...
and when I die
my body will be
worth $4.50
$3.50 for the skin
and a buck for all else
some sobering facts
right there, my friend

so how do I have the nerve
to see myself as gift?

well, I am gift
as you are gift
what defines us
cannot be measured
in monetary or any other terms

only that...
when I look into your eyes
I gaze into the face of God

only that...
hearing your voice
ignites my very soul

only that....
my gift and yours
emanate from the same Giver...

only that...
