Daily missive for Thursday the 7th of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 7th of January.

 

Take account of the little things.
Be ever mindful
Of the power in a soft kiss,
A gentle touch,
The weight of a head
Bowed
And resting
Upon your chest.
The way her eyes
Dance and sparkle,
Like fireflies,
Catching the light
From the sun,
Deepening the magic
When she smiles.
The jokes
She tells so badly
That make you laugh
Because it is her way.
The embarrassment
She feels
For being a little
Too risqué.
Even the apologies she gives
Everyday,
For no reason,
The little things
We can all get wrong
From time to time,
As nobody is perfect,
Although some
Come pretty close.
The soft inflections
That modulate her voice
When she shows interest
In others.
The empathy she feels
So honestly,
Toward those who suffer.
A generosity of spirit
That puts me to shame.
And the joy she gets
From the little things
Some people take for granted,
But somehow transcend
Endings,
And stay with you,
Warm and welcoming,
Forever.
