Those sweet little things

Those sweet little things

We’re sitting in the living room
The TV droning on
As I just sit there dreaming
Or write a little song
My lady she’s just sitting there
With a crossword or a game
An attentive look upon her face
It’s every night the same.

And yet, you know I worship it
All the time we spend together
One moment in her company
It could go on forever
All filled with peace and harmony
It’s the sweetest thing on Earth
Just sitting in that living room
It has, for me such worth.

Once I was a doubter
Of the very best things in life
My boredom caused much trouble
And gave me so much strife
But now I know it’s the little things
They’re what life’s all about
It took me such a long, long time
But now I’ve found this out.

    Thank you Debbie, my boredom in the past has caused me so much strife. Still I had to go there to find out where I am now....Peter

    Very sweet, romantic and true of the simple beauty that exists all around us in our daily lives.

    In the end it's the mundane that brings contentment. I like your writing style, Peter. Well done. Licia :-)
