A short poem on the different ways in wich we measure importance.

I could be many things

but I could not be them

without you

I don't know how to measure life

in achievements

All I want to take pride in

is you and me

and our beautiful family.

Family is very important, as is our relationships with others, so it is crucial to keep a sense of perspective.

You have conveyed that message in its simplest and most direct form.
Kudos to you

A lovely sentiment. But we will be remembered much more for poetry than we will for adding to the population to establish family ties. We cannot be fulfilled through others, only through ourselves.

Short, sweet, and very meaningful; thank you for sharing, Elisabeth. Love and best wishes,

'Nuff said. But I'll say more. I heard an expression just recently and it when somewhat like this, "If it doesn't contribute to the family you have no reason to be doing it."
