Savoring Quiet Pleasures

by David Kuenzli

In a world full of pleasures, how best can I decide

Just what makes me happy, way down deep inside?

 

If something sparkles like a diamond

But costs most of what I own,

Is it worth the price I have to pay?

Or will it sink me like a stone?

Seems like some folks can’t be happy

Till they’ve got a pot of gold.

But by then much of their life’s gone by.

They’re lonely and they’re old.

 

But I’m a contented person and will be till I’m laid to rest,

Because I’ve learned life’s peaceful pleasures are the best!

 

Yes, I’m savoring quiet pleasures

That have stood the test of time.

They’re the ones I share with friends

And make me glad to be alive!

Some things that sparkle like a diamond

Overtime can lose their glint.

 

That’s why to me life’s quiet pleasures are heaven-sent.

 

Seems like some folks get a bit confused

Wondering what this life’s about.

They work too hard and have no fun.

They’re full of angst and doubt.

If they ask me, I would say to them

“Take time to laugh and jest.

 

And remember peaceful pleasures are the best!”

Yes, I’m savoring simple pleasures

In the quiet deep inside.

They’re the ones I share with friends

And make me glad to be alive!

Things that sparkle like a diamond

Overtime can turn to dust.

 

That’s why to me life’s quiet pleasures are the best.
