The Simplest Things of Life

Life is sweet, life is fun

Life is full of great new dreams

Life is fresh, life is good

Life’s not tampering with my mood

 

I can see, I can breath,

I can live life to the full.

 

I can talk, I can walk

I can swing my arms around.

 

I can dance, I can jump

I can play the games I like.

 

I can pray – everyday!

I can sing on many notes.
‘Tis a great thing to be blessed

With the simplest things of life

These are rarely boasted about

But are vital things to enjoy.

So the next time you are low

Fight that feeling with these thoughts

And be thankful for the simple things of life.

How I Write

I write my words with silent awe

Breaking out of my quiet zone

Amid clustered, worrying thoughts

That tend to block the writing flow

I persist without pen or paper

Choosing carefully;

Erasing some and adding some

Till satisfied that they feel right and sound right

 

I write with care for the one who will read

We’re a little connected through this thread of words

We like to read and ponder text

And sometimes recite aloud to another who will listen

We don’t get tired or bored or sad

We just keep moving when we see no end

 

Life for us is made up of words

Not the whole of it, really

But a good bit of it

So whenever I write, it has to feel right

So that when you read, you will know what I feel.
