Small Thoughts

Almost always it is the small things

That most greatly affect our ives

a word of encouragement

an expression of love

sounds of happiness in our day

Brief feelings and understandings

that make us what we are

And thoughts

simple

transitory

deep

It isn't writings or conversations

That create our meaning here on earth

where we go

what we do

what we say

It isn't the journey that directs us

It is the small thoughts along the way
