Nothing matters more

When someone can love you as you do
and win your soulmate when you woo,
When you lie down and fall sound asleep
When what you sow you can reap –
Nothing else matters more.

When what you eat makes you feel lively
When what you drink makes you feel jolly
When what you see makes you feel happy
When what you hear makes you feel merry –
Nothing else matters more.

When you trade and get a fair deal
When you pray and overcome an ordeal
When you dream and bring it to fruition
When with your faith you can but reason –
Nothing else matters more.

When you’ve honored your given pledges
and begin to live with no past regrets
When you face serenely your remaining sunsets
and die in peace bearing no grudges –
Nothing else matters more.
