2 takes on Magpie Photo Prompt 103

MAG #103
a grave at the Novodevichy Cemetery, Moscow

the gem i have
is the gem
that everyone
is dying to have...

a healthy
and loving heart
that i will cherish
be grateful
and care for
'til the end of my life.

* * * * * * * * *

Whatever treasure you have
Use it to make your life
And those who are connected to you,
Good or even better...
For no matter how hard you try
You can never take it to your grave...
