So, the little things are what truly matter in the end-a poem for DJ

Listening to endless droning about my crazy job Taking the car to get repairs Calling to make sure I am in the Uber and safe Drying tears over feelings hurt once again An impromptu lunch to celebrate a small success Trying new things like apple picking to celebrate my traditions Buying me more new reads […]

So, a poem-little time…

Little time to reflect Life is too crazed Barely enough hours I hope it is a phase The little time given Can pass in a flash So make it count Don’t live life in a dash Spend hours on what matters Surrender to loved ones only Value people not things Money will leave you lonely […]
