A Measure Of My Life

Do not measure my life in the distance that I travel
but how far I will go for others
not in how much love I get
but how much I give
not in the years that I live
but in what I do with those years
not in the tears I shed
but in the tears of joy I bring to others
not in the gifts I receive
but in the gifts I give
not in the jewels I own
but in those jewels that cannot be bought
for these are the things that build a stairway to heaven
and let me be satisfied just knowing
that I am loved by God
