POEM|The Little Things

I didn’t appreciate the little things before…

the sound of your voice
or how I was always your choice;

being at peace all the time
and knowing I had you full time;

being your handyman
and how I was always on your mind;

all the things about you
I lost not wanting to

Now I’m learning to appreciate everything…

a good morning call
or a notification on my wall;

the cool weather when it rains
and the days the sun is mild;

a shopping discount
and a traffic free journey home;

a smile that lights up my day
or a simple thank you that comes my way

The little things are not so little anymore.
