the simple life
by The Weepies
Can I get up in the morning
Put the kettle on
Make us some coffee, say "hey" to the sun...
Is it enough to write a song and sing it to the birds?
They'd hear just the tune
Not understand my love for words
But you would hear me and know
I want only this, I want to live
I want to live a simple life...
This has been the song of my heart this morning, as I swept the floor...folded vast amounts of laundry...and then finally escaped to the outdoors to take in the freshness of this spring day...to soak up some much needed Vitamin D...to clear my head. The sweet song of the birds welcomed me and lifted my spirits.
Oh, to be like the birds...to be happy with little. To be content to just sit in the sun and sing...not a worry in the world. I crave that simplicity today. Be gone endless mind chatter. Trust. Bask in the knowledge that you are loved and cared for.
"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" Matthew 6:26
