It’s The Little Things

It’s The Little Things

 

Lots of little things can crack little smiles

 

For certain folks it’s the runner’s high after a few miles

 

Maybe it’s sitting on your porch watching the crazy bastard run by

 

Or seeing friends having fun, the twinkle in a loved one’s eye

 

Perhaps seeing others laugh gets your giggle

 

 Or a cat preparing a predators lunge with a wiggle

 

The hearty laugh of a bearded man

 

The soft whirr of a summer night’s fan

 

The beautiful blue sky, constantly cloudless

 

Or the pitter patter of dripping rain, and dark clouds boundless

 

Or when out and about you see a stranger’s unwavering kindness

 

Families playing, campfires burning, marshmallows toasting and puppies yapping

 

A day outside happy and yearning, or maybe inside lazily napping

 

When finishing a story, a happy ending,

 

Going to a store for a bit of spending

 

The satisfaction of work well done

 

 Then realizing that even though it was tough

 

You still had fun.
