The Friendly Things

 
Oh, it's just the little homely things,
The unobtrusive, friendly things,
The "won't-you-let-me-help-you" things
That make our pathway light.

 
The "Laugh-with-me-it's-funny" things
And it's the jolly, joking things,
The "never-mind-the-trouble" things,
That make the world seem bright.

 
For all the countless famous things
The wondrous record-breaking things,
These "never -can-be-equaled" things
That all the papers cite.

Are not the little human things,
The "everyday encountered" things,
The "just-because-I-like-you" things
That make us happy quite.

 
So here's to all the little things,
The "done-and-then-forgotten" things,
Those "oh-it's-simply-nothing" things
That make life worth the fight.
