Those Little Things in Life - Poetry

Updated on March 2, 2012

It’s the little things that mean a lot

Or so we are told

A single rose, a card, a touch

Never does grow old


It’s the little things that remain so dear

A hug, a sympathetic ear

From friends who share our hurts

And understand our tears

Source


Hearts are easily broken

When harsh words are spoken

More painful than bones broken

With a careless thought or token.



A smile can light up a room

Sweeps away sadness and doom

Shines sunlight through the gloom

Sweeps it all away like a broom


Laughter heals the soul

That sadness holds

It quickens and mends

Draws family and friends

And brings joy to both young and old

How sweet the smell of a tiny babe

Freshly dressed and newly bathed

Bundled up and soft as silk

Satisfied with mother’s milk


Sweetly sleeping safe and warm

Angles protecting from every storm

Perfectly formed right from the start

A blessing given from God’s own heart

Silence is a deep chasm

That separates lovers and friends

Communication builds a bridge

And joy that never ends

      A lovely sweet poem. Too true it is the little things that count and are more meaningful.

      So true Kat, but we take those little things that mean so much for granted until one day those times have slipped by. Thanks for commenting.

      Hi, that's a lovely poem.

      Nothing in the world can buy happiness, love and joy in life. It's those 'little' things that matter, like you described in your words, which in essence are actually BIG things. Because they are the basics of what our life is built on, and what keeps us moving forward.
