The Small Things

Today you walk down the aisle
Immense thought and planning
has gone into every detail
of the special moments you will
celebrate together

As the music fades
Do you promise to bring
the same thought
to your everyday moments?

Gentle morning greetings
yes answers to simple requests
a warm smile at the end of the day

The big things do matter
but what really adds up is all
the small things;
a word
a look
an action

Let it be
daily choices that spell love
not sharp, critical words that tear down
or even worse,
building a wall
by brick?

Over the years,
It will not be the magic‚
or your chemistry         

Happiness will come to you
with careful thought
to the small things.
