The little things in life.

poem by: Christopher Russon
Written on Sep 18, 2016

If you don't have a job anymore. 
Or own a car like you did before 
Then there are new pastures to explore 
Where those little things in life mean a lot .

Like a walk in the town 
Or a stroll through the park 
Where you can watch the children play 
Or listen to a lark. 

Things can easily get you down 
Or even grind you to the ground 
But there is no need to weep or frown
When those little things in life mean a lot.

Take the kids to the zoo 
Or a trip to the sea 
Where the punch and judy man 
Puts on shows for free. 

It's so good to be a live 
At 26 or even 65
And you know you will survive 
When those little things in life mean a lot. 

Like a  hand to hold 
Or a heart of gold 
Where you can come into the warmth 
Out from the cold. 

Then you will know the time will come 
We will fade like the evening sun 
But till then please everyone 
Let those little things in life mean a lot.
