Quiet As A Mouse

Updated on March 12, 2014

I Sit In My House

Yes I may be a little out of the ordinary

But I think I am on to something

When I get home from a long day

I do what I have to unwind

Then after a shower and when I am tired

Before I get into my bed

I go out into the kitchen and pull up a chair

I sit so still

Looking at the whole room around me

With my wife already asleep

I love the house when it is almost unchanged to the human eye

Everywhere I look it looks the same

I know my body is aging at this very moment

How about all the things that fill the room

I think about the quality of the air

The wear and tear on the cabinets

From being opened and closed so many times

Day after day

All the appliances that have so many working parts

Even the electricity that is my source of light

Powers up the laptop and the refrigerator and so many more things I can't remember

I guess what I am trying to say

I love my home

Over the years I have watched

As we have made small changes to make each room nicer

The worn spots on the kitchen floor that I only see

How lucky I am to have lived at this time

With so many conviences at my fingertips

Who knows what tomorrow will bring

I would be happy if it was just like today

      Time marches on but our possessions and surroundings become part of us and make us feel comfortable. Taking one day at a time sounds like a great idea! Ann

      I can totally relate Dream On. I often look around me at the things and people I have in my life and realise that I wouldn't want to change a thing.

      The changes made to your home allowed you to appreciate your life even more. When you think about your life with a peaceful mind there a lot to be happy about. Everyday is not the same and our experiences and moods show us all we need to know.
