The simple things





The smell of fresh cut grass 

Brings reflections of childhood 

Oh how the time does pass 

It's the simple things in life that mean the most 

Blue skies, corn fields, a freight train heading to the coast 

A free car wash from a surprise summer storm 

Watching a short story or poem take form 

It's the simple things in life that bring us bliss 

A crackling fire, lightning bugs, a salty kiss

The simple things are there right before your eyes 

Just take a moment to look around 

and you'll realize 

That it's the simple things in life that make us smile

all to remind us that the journey is worthwhile
