Simple, Basic


Simple things in a day make me happy
Like the clouds or a nice cup of coffee
I could be lost in a flower’s beauty
Alluring every insect every bee

Make stones and pebbles arranged in a line
With some pots and some flowers oh looking divine
I can patiently admire every hue
As I am reminded of me and you

Evening breeze or the shiny morning dew
I can sit quietly thinking of you
I can stare lovingly at the soft rain
Bathing nature purely out of her pain

Count some soldier ants so sturdy so strong
Falling in a line they never go wrong
Or maybe strum your guitar with a tune
Just strum and then sing then stare at the moon

Simple things basic needs nothing else
For as long as you’re mine sadness melts
I’m ok I am fine I’m at peace
‘Cause the life that I have is a bliss.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Life is better when it is simple, when you see little things others forget. And you do this when you are secured and showered with love.

    Oh, so wonderful! Happy to give a well deserved 10 to this beautiful poem.
    You seem to be basking in love and happiness, may this continue to shower on you for ever!
    'Simple things basic needs nothing else
    For as long as you’re mine sadness melts
    I’m ok I am fine I’m at peace
    ‘Cause the life that I have is a bliss.'
    You take the readers with you in enjoying the bliss of life.
    Now, about your note, the first part is of course undeniable. With regard to the second sentence, may I say, those who are not 'secured and showered with love', may also ' see little things others forget'.
    Please read my poem 'You And Me' and be kind to offer a few words. (Report) Reply
