Simple Blessings

When sadness comes and firmly clings

I try to think of pleasant things

Bringing memories to my mind

Happy thoughts of every kind

Like hiking trails without a care

Pure white snow and crispy air

Pushing children on their swings

All these simple mundane things

Big white clouds in summer sky

Baby birds in nests near by

A cup of coffee, tasty bread

Sunsets in the night sky spread

A very special book to treasure

Going to the beach, such pleasure

In my mind these thoughts take place

All these blessings I embrace...
