Little Things

Hi everyone! Today was pretty humdrum and boring - I had three quizzes in various classes and my best friend is out of school until Tuesday. The upside of the quizzes was that I didn't have much homework, and I got to write a particularly emotional and heart-rending chapter of FH. So there's a plus. :D

Wrote today's poem quite awhile ago, back when the days were long, the sun was hot, and it was socially acceptable to eat an entire tub of ice cream in one sitting. ;) Do let me know what you think!

love, Topaz

Little Things

Two ice creams, please. One French vanilla and one mint chocolate chip. Always the same little things but it’s the little things that make us who we are.

You and I are walking in the park hand in hand, in harmony with the birds and the dogs and the trees. Just the same little things but with you the little things are adventures of the heart.

And you point far away to a bird that I can’t seem to find and when I look back there is a ring in your hand. Such a little thing but oh, such happiness this little thing holds.

And the whole park hears my answer as you pick me up and twirl me around and kiss me long and hard Just another little thing but the taste of the ice cream on your lips is the best little thing in the world.

Treasure the little things, someone once told me and I will treasure that sweet mint chocolate kiss forever.
