A Satisfied Mind

How many times have you heard someone say
If I had his money I’d do things my way
How little they know that it’s so hard to find
One rich man in a hundred with a satisfied mind

Once I was living in fortune and fame
Had everything that I dreamed of to get a start in life’s game
Then suddenly it happened I lost every dime
But I’m richer by far with a satisfied mind

Money can’t buy back your youth when you’re old
Or a friend when you’re lonely or a heart that’s grown cold
And the world’s richest man is a pauper at times
Compared to a man with a satisfied mind

When my life is over and my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones I’ll leave there’s no doubt
But one thing’s for certain when it comes my time
I’ll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
