The simple things in life, a poem for Mike by Tracy Diane Miller

The best life has to offer
Are the simple things I find to be true
Like the joy of a special friendship
I found by knowing you

For you offer sincerity
In a world where some people are fake
To underestimate the value in the simple things in life
Would be such a huge mistake

I think that is why I found such comfort
Holding on to memories of the past
The times before I became a cynic
How I wish such innocence had last

But you remind me of that happy time
Your humor and kind soul
You remind me of the simple things in life
The joy that my memories hold
