The Little Things
Are Most Important
It really is the little things
That mean the most of all...
The "let me help you with that" things
That may seem very small,
The "I'll be glad to do it" things
That make your cares much lighter,
The "laugh with me, it's funny" things
That make your outlook brighter...
The "never mind the trouble" things,
The "yes, I understand,"
The interest and encouragement
In everything you've planned...
It really is the little things,
The friendly word or smile,
That add such happiness to life
And make it more worth while.
The Little Things Are Most Important Poem, by Mary Dawson Hughes.
