What Matters Most……..by Dawn Faust

Re-posting for new followers.  A poem I wrote in 2010 when I was trying to figure out not what I had lost but what remained.  It is a good compass and reading it keeps me centered.  Enjoy!!

What Matters Most………..

Is my conscience clear

Growing in Character

Year by year

Living and loving

Not ordered by fear

True friends and family

Held ever so dear…………That’s what matters most

What matters most……..

Is what I have done

With my  time and talent,

And rearing my young.

And babies I rocked

And lullabies sung.

Memories made

And praise on my tongue…….That’s what matters most

What matters most……….

Is lessons I learned

Things God has taught me

And corners I turned

For not being hardened

When I’ve been spurned

To be open to love

Despite being burned…………That’s what matters most

What Matters most…………..

Is what you create

With what you are given

Whatever your fate

And being  GRATEFUL

For what’s on your plate

When you EXCEED Circumstance

That’s  when your GREAT……… That’s what matters most.

What Matters Most…………….

Is time you invest

In  lives and souls

at God’s  request

And sharing your faith

 When put to the test

And giving your all

So that others are blessed……..And that’s what matters MOST.
