Simple Things

Life can be difficult but there are ways to assuage the pain Take joy in simple things! A smile, a handshake, a heartfelt greeting A glass of cool water - a tasty morsel Knock down the barriers that bottle up joy Look up and kiss the blue sky Sweet rain will soon come Flowers will soon rise up from the earth Take joy in simple things It is the path to freedom
