The ultimate prize

No man alive has riches like my own
The vault that holds our memories is diamonded and pearled
Each moment that we shared, a precious stone
I wouldn’t swap the life we’ve had for journeys through the stars
We’ve seen the sights explorers only dream
The World my pay in trillions to erect a base on Mars
To you and I how foolish that can seem
I wouldn’t give away my love to any other wife
No beauty Queen is rival to your face
The vows we gave were never chains but bought a lease on life
I couldn’t be in any finer place
The Kings and Queens of History will queue to take a bow
For you and I have ruled a greater state
I won you as a foolish boy and I still hold you now
I also won that lottery called fate.
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
that then I scorn to change my state with kings.
– William Shakespeare
There must be someone out there who has a life like this!!!
Whoever they are I think we all envy you
