little things that make me smile


There are little things I see and feel,
That really make me smile.
They may not last forever though,
They sure do last a while.

While walking through a lonely road,
When I see a butterfly,
For a moment it sits on the flower
And it quickly passes by...

When everyone resorts to slumber
In the sunny summer heat
A puppy yawns and stretches a bit,
Then goes back deeply to sleep...

There are little things I see and feel,
That really make me smile.
They may not last forever though,
They sure do last a while.

When a baby is playing in my arms,
And engrossed in the toy, deep
But suddenly he leans upon my shoulder
And instantly goes to sleep.

When something has gone wrong in the day
And I’m down feeling blue,
Suddenly a friend hugs me tight,
And I know he took the cue.

There are little things I see and feel,
That really make me smile.
They may not last forever though,
They sure do last a while.

Today in our monotonous lives,
Where man works like a machine,
Eat, sleep, work, rest
All in the same routine.

There may not be continuous bliss
Like a river forever flowing
But these little things I see and feel
Really keep me going

These little things I see and feel,
Really make me smile.
They may not stay forever though,
They sure do last quite a while...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
