Life's Simple Treasures Poem by Mary Nagy

Life's Simple Treasures



Sometimes it's just the little things
that make this ol' heart smile.
Like when you pat your knee to me
and say ''Just sit awhile''.

The way you smile that cheesy smile
that makes me laugh out loud.
Or when you introduce me......
like you're just so darn proud.

The muffled little giggles
of the kids behind the door.
I'm sure they're up to something......
only God knows what's in store.

The way you say you love me
as we're drifting off to sleep.
My list could go forever.
These are treasures that I'll keep.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

Hi Mary, I tried to read this last night, but the first lines hurt so much, so I've come back to it today. It is a perfect expression of those little things that make loving such a wonderful expression of the human heart, and well worth trusting, in order to achieve. Well done and 10 from Tai, hold on to those moments.

This is a very intimate piece Mary which adds a depth to it. On the face the four line stanza form gives the impression of something simple, yet read through again and the intamacy of the piece takes on a familiarity for the reader. Wonderful piece!
