    The value of life
    I thought about
    While in the shower
    One morning

    And I thought
    It is not the things
    That I have
    That make a difference

    It’s me

    For the ones that would come
    When I pass away
    For the tears they would shed
    For the empty space in their hearts

    For love

    The value of life
    The smiles I gave
    The hugs, the love we all shared
    Not things

    So I set out to right all the wrongs
    To replace frowns
    With smiles
    And a warm forgiving heart

    The value of life
    Seeing God in a sunrise
    The beauty of His smile
    In a flower

    And you

    For I value you
    Above myself
    For your friendship
    For your hugs, for your love

    My value
