the little things
Live for the sunrises and sunsets
When the sky swirls like cotton candy clouds
or the moments it glows like a pool of honey
Live for when the cool, calm breeze blows your hair
as you walk home listening to your favorite song
Live for the moment you sink into your bed after a long day
and for the next morning when a stranger smiles your way
as you sip your morning cup of coffee
Live for the little things that make the world seem warmer, and welcoming
When we live for the smaller, littler things in life
We’ll realize then, what it means to be alive.
