the light and the air are the same;

their touch on my skin is familiar.

clouds hang in the sky and my lungs.

my future is open forever.

i’ve got boots to use in snow and rain,

a couple coats to hug me;

umbrellas to shelter

and collars to pop.

these things, they are small,

they are simple.

they aren’t worth much, that’s true

but these are the things

for which

i

am thankful

and to

me

they mean a

a shared sandwich between two,

a shared laugh’s even better.

i’ll add as many as

i can to the room that’s my heart

because we hold the roof and walls together.

knock twice,

i’ll let you in.

smile once,

i’m in love.

but if you came in with a frown,

feeling down, down, down,

i‘ve got two shoulders to lend to you.

my own tears have fallen but

i use them to water my garden.

you can pick every flower; set them high in your lonely tower.

my darling, you come can come down when you need.

these things, they are small,

they are simple.

they aren’t worth much, that’s true

but these are the things

for which

i am thankful

and to

me

they mean a-

you’ve crashed airplanes,

i’ve lost diamonds and

ripped my favorite shirt in half.

i sport bruises and scars

and yet

i possess more than

for what

i could’ve asked.

i have you and you and you,

even a few who watch over me

and without you,

i wouldn’t be

who i am today: that’s me.

i am so different; not so different

because your patience upheld me so.

God gave me you to love

and you to love me;

to tell me when

i’m

dumb,

beautiful,

inconsiderate,

radiant.

really, everything in-between.

these things, they are small,

they are simple.

they aren’t worth much, that’s true

but these are the things

for which

i am thankful

and to

me

they mean a

these things, they are small,

they are simple.

they aren’t worth much, that’s true

but these are the things

for which

i am thankful

and to

me

they mean a

lot.

My emotional outlet used to be dancing, but I switched it for writing… or at least for Microsoft Word. I collect used books, people-watch, and always need to shop with a friend because I’m an indecisive person who needs motivation to spend money. I am @franksmycousin on all forms of social media. Feel free to tag me in anything you think would inspire me! Hollaback.
