Living the Simple Life

Just Recently Taken 021

We may not have a lot

and we may be living quite simple,

but as long as in this world we are two –

then we are more than rich.

 

We may not be walking,

In shoes that cost big bucks,

during the summer we’re better off –

dancing in bare feet.

 

There may be money worries,

today and tomorrow,

wondering how we are going –

to get along and not borrow.

 

But the days are quiet and still,

we can be content,

in the love we share

and that can keep the worries at bay.

 

Enjoying days of sunshine

and taking quiet walks,

spending idyllic nights –

sharing kisses doesn’t cost a cent.

 

So riches may be fine for some,

but the best things in life are always free,

from the wonder of nature all around

and the blue sky and clouds flying by.

 

Besides we don’t have a car that needs gas

and we don’t have to spend for transportation,

we have our two feet,

which take us everywhere side by side.

 

So let’s be glad for the love we have

and share what we can,

I’m sure that someday –

our dreams will lead us to a brighter day.

  1. The most precious things in life can never be bought with money. Never, ever.

    sounds like me & mine we’re not rich but we do what
    we can with what we got to make each day count for us
    like I tell my better 1/2 as long as we have each other
    & something to eat we got it made that’s what counts.
