There’s little glee that for sale
That earthly greed can purchase
Little things that make us smile
That’s where true delight emerges.
Laughing and dancing in the rain
The sweet scent of petrichor
Cuddling on a winter morning
Aroma of cedar and myrrh.
The warmth of holding hands
Crickets chirping through the night
Marshmallows toasting on a fire
A new born baby’s delight.
The things that warm the heart
Which repel all the strife
What truly makes us smile?
It’s the little things in life.
