I want Life to Be Simple

I want Life to Be Simple

I want life to be simple, 

beautiful

and undistracted.

A life full of family,

and of running,

(oh yes, the miles!)

and of coffee in the morning.


I want life to be simple,

beautiful

and with plenty of trees,

(and water!)

and of coffee in the afternoon.

Spent with family:

wife,

kids,

and our no-good dogs.


I want life to be simple,

beautiful,

not free of pain

but free of suffering.

(Do you know the difference?)


I want life to be simple,

beautiful,

full of faith

and of

grace.
