The Little Things





Today, we had a long conversation
Beside the purling sea
It was more like a long narration
Between best friends you see


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh, don't look so bemused my friend
Skies can't always smile in pink and pearly
Let's look back and comprehend
Those long speeches,"to be in early"


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You see, beauty takes form in elusive ways
And the finer things are oft times free
Like tweaking memories from bypast days
Of things that used to be  


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Remember the first time you drove a car?
I wrecked within the first few miles
Daddy didn't know I'd taken it; but, I didn't go far
Nuggets that bring smiles


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And you, I said as we stared into space
Oh, she said, there're a few moments to uncover
Like tasting dad's liquor; the look on his face
Unlocking doors; let's rediscover


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Feel life's substance; embrace another's touch
Put a message in a bottle where the brook and river meet
It's time to go my friend; this meant so much
Finger-painting memories from our window seat
