People collect the most curious things,
Such as thimbles and spoons,
old toys and rings,
An assortment of dishes
that are packed up in boxes,
With old stamps and rare coins
and pocket watches.

There are buttons and bows
and pictures galore,
Their house is soon full,
but they keep buying more.

But where is the joy
their possessions should bring,
When they fill up their lives
with such trivial things?

I know a man
who boasts of no solid gold pens,
His contentment is found
in gathering friends.

His worth is not measured
by what he may own,
He gives of himself
and will always be known....

As a man of kindness and deep affection
We are blessed to a be part of his collection.

For my friend Tom
