The Simple Things In Life


If ever you are feeling down
Whatever it is that makes you frown
Just open your eyes and look about
You’ll find something, without a doubt
To make you smile and appreciate
That the simple things in life are great

A smile, a glance, a hug, a touch
From someone that you love so much
A flower, a leaf, a blade of grass
Nature’s treasures we blindly pass

The serenity of a sleeping child
Even if, in the daytime they tend to run wild
A newborn baby so complete yet so small
You can’t help but wonder the miracle of it all

Trina Graves – 15th November 2001
