Stories Worth Remembering

Pure Wonder

Pure Wonder

By Todd F. Cope

I look at the world around me

With all of its sadness and pain,

Where so much time is consumed

In the endless pursuit of gain;

And wonder.

I wonder,

Isn’t there more to this life—

Aren’t there more important things

Than this never-ending quest

For the wares that money brings?

So I ponder.

I ponder.

The real beauty of this earth is found

In the time spent with those whom I love,

And together we’re simply preparing

For forever with Father above—

In wonder,

Pure wonder.
