It’s the little things which make us smile,

That remind us all that life is worth while.

It’s the little things that help us forget,

That the world is hurting but we’re alive yet.

When all our days are full of bad things,

It helps to appreciate the little things.

They’re why we’re alive and why we forgive,

It’s what keeps us going and what makes us live.

While some things are grand and greater than all,

Those things come rarely and to wait we would fall.

So in between there are little things to enjoy

And enjoy we must all like a child with a toy.

But what are these things and where are they found?

To each person their own but I swear they’re around

A dance, a stroll, a kiss or a hug.

To win at a game, to be loved, to feel smug

To share, to help or be helped by another,

The love of a lover, a father or mother.

The love of our friends, our sister or child,

The love of our own or the love of the wild.

The sun rising each day is enough I should hope,

And all of these things can help us to cope.

So remember I say and hope it will bring,

As long as we remember the little things.
