Little Things That Matter a Mighty Lot …

December 14, 2009

Little drops of rain on trees gladdening my tired heart.

Hungry bunnies chewing away, making me smile their way.

The sudden cackle of birds, taking me by surprise.

The little jump my tummy does,when a special one comes visiting my thoughts.

The fragrance of a simple repast, left lingering on my hands.

The love I see in my parent’s eyes, when they are thinking of me.

The calm in a sleeping person’s spirit relaxing my own worries.

Sweet thoughts of a tomorrow, making my time fly by so fast.

The easy laughter of content souls filling a home.

Those quiet moments when nothing is said but a lot understood.

Little things they are, little things they will be,

All it needs is a look and there it is laid out for me

The smidgen things which matter a mighty lot to me!

      It’s just a matter of time, Gils. Once you are in that mode/relation, you begin to feel see wonder someone can read your thoughts explicitly!! But, the quietness is smthing I never regret for!!

      That’s just true Savi. And yes, the quiet times are priceless! πŸ™‚
