Simple little things
If only you had cared,
The difference that would have made.
The joy had yet to be foretold,
The beauty of the dawn was there for us to hold,
But never quite the glorious morn, for us be it told.
Simple things you forgot,
The smell of the fresh cut grass.
The array of colours of the autumn leaves,
Swirling mischievously in the breeze.
The techno coloured rainbow we find so pleasing,
With hidden tales of bounty, teasing.
The sound of a lovers laugh,
The ebbing of the breaking sea.
Giggles from the god sent child.
These are thing that I hold most dear.
Heavenly choirs, rejoicing harvest hymns,
Never forget these thoughts, always keep them near.
Raindrops upon my windowpane,
And hurling, fierce, fowl, winds.
Banging upon my window sill,
Demanding, protesting, let me in!
The sound of silence a moment such rare to hear.
Brings much delightful music to my ear.
Oh, the simple little things in life.
Be ye, foolish not to note,
and be wise that ye should quote,
When upon your darkest hour.
For these things I speak of are yours to keep,
For those determined the Holy Grail to seek.
Never forget the people you hold dear,
And always ensure that you keep them near.
Forget those who seek to undermine,
And grant them no more of your precious time.
Show courage, kindness, empathy and wipe your tears away,
For remember, what is today, tomorrow is yesterday.
