By Bud Lemire

Some people have big houses, possibly two cars
I'm content with what I have, just gazing at the stars
Don't need a Blu-Ray disk player, I'm content with DVD
I'm satisfied with what I have, I'm content just being me

Don't need a camera, that will zoom right someone's nose
I'm content with what I have, capturing what nature shows
I truly don't need a great stereo, that will knock off my socks
I'm satisfied just hearing tunes, coming from my boombox

I don't need a lot of money, just enough to get by
Being rich on what I love, is enough to get me high
I take in Mother Nature's work, the beauty to behold
As all the creatures in this world, begin to unfold

I flow with what's inside, I listen to my soul
Don't need fancy expensive things to make me whole
Give me a book I enjoy, or music that I love
The pleasure is the greatest reward, I'm ever thinking of

Don't need to own a home, or have an expensive car
When I have the greatest love, it's the best by far
The best in love that I have, it is Heaven sent
I'm so very happy with it, I am more than content

Notes by Poet:
Being content doesn't mean that I don't wish for a little more at times,
But it does mean I am content with what I have, and have learned to
adjust and appreciate all I do have. Many times we have all we need
right in front of us. All we have to do is appreciate what it is we do have
and we shall be content.
