Moments to cherish…

When I see the little flowers dance,

Their faces shining and glowing in the soft morning sunlight; 

When I hear the leaves rustle,

As if whispering to each other in the evening spring breeze;  

When I see the fresh green grass,

Bearing the little droplets, after a quick shower from the heavens;  

When I smell the perfumed talc on a baby’s skin

Just after a nice warm shampoo bath;   

When I see the warmth in the eyes

Of an elderly person who is being helped;  

When I see the joy in a child’s smile,

When her parent comes to pick her up, after a long wait;  

When I feel the soft fur of a puppy,

That loves to snuggle and lick you up in love;  

 When I taste the sweetness in the melon

As I dig my teeth into its juicy flesh;  

Oh! those are the moments I enjoy most,

And realise the little things that nature gives us to cherish.
