Aunt Cassie

This is a poem for a very special aunt

To My Special Aunt

It's not the things that can be bought that are life's richest treasure, It's just the little heart gifts that money cannot measure . . . A cheerful smile, a friendly word, a sympathetic nod Are priceless little treasures from the storehouse of our God . . . They are the things that can't be bought with silver or with gold, For thoughtfulness and kindness and love are never sold . . . They are the priceless things in life for which no one can pay, And the giver finds rich recompense in giving them away. And who does more good for others that everyone else can't Than my understanding, kind and wise and selfless, loving Aunt. t takes many special qualities To make an aunt like you, A lot of care and kindness And understanding, too... It takes a special kind of love That seems to know no end And the thoughtfulness and patience Of a true and trusted friend... It takes many special qualities To make an aunt like you, And that's why you Are loved and missed so much for all you used to do.
