Those Little Things
by G. Haines

Oh, it's just the little homely things
The unobtrusive, friendly things,
The "won't-you-let-me-help-you" things,
That make our pathway light.

And it's just the jolly, joking things,
The "never-mind-the-trouble" things,
The "laugh-with-me-it's-funny" things,
That make the world seem bright.

For all the countless famous things,
The wonderous, record breaking things,
Those never-can-be-equalled things,
That all the papers cite,

Are not like little human things,
The everyday-encountered things,
The 'just-because-I-like-you" things,
That make us happy quite.

So here's to all the little things,
The done-and-then-forgotten things,
Those "oh, it's-simply-nothing" things,
That make life worth the fight.
