The Little Things


This life can give us great sorrow,
For every minute that we borrow,
This life may come as a great surprise,
For those willing to take the prize,

This life can be a living hell,
But can be sweetened,
With a beautiful smell,
This life can make us very depressed,
But can also make us feel very blessed.

For we never know what this life may bring,
So take joy in the little things.
