It's The Simple Things

© more by Gemma Troy

Published by Family Friend Poems February 2021 with permission of the Author.

It’s the simple things
that bring me joy
it’s being with you
that fills my soul
it’s everything
that money can’t buy
like love
and freedom
and kindness
and a smile
that sets my heart
on fire
