It’s The Simpler Things In Life
~ 2015 ~
Take less, give more.
Ask for little, offer much.
Expect small amounts.
Be filled with joy at receiving big amounts.
Bring a full baked meal when a friend is sick.
Now and then check in on your neighbors well being.
Now and then check in your towns animal shelters needs.
Visit a local nursing home with a couple of homemade breads.
Smile at the warmth of the sun, smell the coolness of rain.
Pick up a leaf off the ground and see in it the wonder of God.
Open your door wide with a smile and listen when a Jehovah’s
Witness comes to visit you.
My forgetter’s getting better
But my rememberer is broke
To you that may seem funny
But, to me, that is no joke.
For when I’m ‘here’ I’m wondering
If I really should be ‘there’
And, when I try to think it through,
I haven’t got a prayer!
Often times I walk into a room,
Say “what am I here for?”
I wrack my brain, but all in vain
A zero, is my score.
At times I put something away
Where it is safe, but, Gee!
The person it is safest from
Is, generally, me!
When shopping I may see someone,
Say “Hi” and have a chat,
Then, when the person walks away
I ask myself, “who was that?”
Yes, my forgetter’s getting better
While my rememberer is broke,
And it’s driving me plumb crazy
And that isn’t any joke.
