Best Things in Life (Poem)

By Les Henson.

The best things in life

are unassuming and ordinary.

The smile of a mother

and the laughter of children.

A long walk

in the early morning.

An evening with mates

amid the cut-an-thrust of debate.

The simplest of meals

eaten with family and friends.

Watching a wild sea

as it crashes on the rocks.

Reading a good book,

curled up on the couch.

The warmth of the sun

after the recesses of winter.

It is the simple things in life

that make life so worthwhile.
