THE SIMPLEST THINGS - by Lauren Eise Combs


by  Lauren Eise Combs

It's the simplest things
That make life worthwhile,
Sunlight on water
A baby's smile.

A robin's bright song
At the start of the day,
The sweet, clean aroma
Of freshly mown hay.

A breeze in the tree tops
That whispers and sighs,
Cold, brilliant starlight
In dark winter skies.

Crisp apple cider
On an October morn,
A mourning dove's call
Sad and forlorn.

Rain gently falling
On dry thirsty land,
A friend who will listen
And then understand.

A soft sandy beach
Stretching mile after mile,
It's the simplest things
That make life worthwhile.
