I walked into town


I walked into town
Our shopping is now all done
Plenty in the fridge

I have stretched my legs
The garden bursts with colour
Tea and biscuit time

Our dog grins at us
Clearly suggesting a walk
To the park we go

You are by my side
I sneak one sweet tender kiss
We laugh together

How simple it is
Counting our blessings each day
Basking in your warmth

  1. We must always count our blessings instead of complaining of what we don't have. This is the key to happiness. A lovely poem :)

  2. I prefer simple blessings to complicated ones, as does, apparently, the speaker in the poem.
