Simple Things

It’s the simple things you do

that make my day brighter.

It’s the way that you always say hi

that makes me smile.


It’s the way you pull me close

when I’m crying that calms me.

It’s the way you don’t get frustrated

when I can’t figure something out.


It’s the way you make me smile

when no one else can, and

the way you don’t mind 

being borrowed by me for a few.


It’s the way you’re always

there for me that helps.

It’s the way you say

“Everything will be alright.”


It’s the way we can’t always

show how close we are.

It’s the way we communicate

sitting across the room with texts.


These simple things make my day

no matter what is happening.

It’s the simple things that

have made us good friends.
