Simple Pleasures

Rating: 4.8
Watching all of the sweet smiles on a loved ones face
Running around the race track and keeping up the pace
Touching the dew drops glistening on the wet ground
Going out to dinner then stepping out on the town

Getting together for a picnic in a lush green park
Laughing and playing many games long after the dark
Walking barefoot over the soft warm sand at the beach
Looking up at the stars at night that's too far to reach

Sitting and talking on the porch gazing up at the moon
Wondering how awesome not wanting to go to bed too soon
Humming a lively tune or singing a medley of love songs
Thinking about what went right and not about the wrongs

Tasting sweet honey from a hive freshly made by the bees
Smelling the fresh aromas emanating from magnolia trees
Listening to the voice and sounds of every living thing
Enjoying the many blessings that a brand new day can bring

Remembering the good old times that you and others shared
Hugging and kissing in showing others how much you cared
Giving a helping hand to some who show they are in need
Sitting there with the lonely showing someone a kind deed

Savoring the taste of a succulent and very delightful dish
Watching a shooting star at night and then making a wish
Reaching out your hands to others always with a tender touch
Telling your friends and loved ones how you love them so much

Reading a bedtime story to a young child sitting on your lap
Getting together with the youth just for a little time to rap
Wrote a letter then picked up the phone to dial an old friend
Enjoy the simple pleasures in life for soon it'll come to an end

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
This poem was written telling of some of the simple things
in life that we miss out on. It isn't always the great and
earth shattering events that have the most impact on our lives
but the seemingly small and insignificant ones that does. I
am quite sure that the list can go on and on. Life simple
pleasures enjoy yours to the fullest. Love and peace.
