Wouldn’t it be wonderful to feel
The excitement of seeing your first bird,
A balloon on a string, bobbing along,
Or a field of wild flowers waving at you?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to feel that magic
In all of the small things we take for granted?
Wouldn’t the world be a wonderful place
If we weren’t all in need of the latest phone,
We didn’t need those clothes with expensive labels,
We just needed hugs and sweetness and kisses?
Wouldn’t that make for a lovely new life
Without dark jealousies weighing us down?
