Some Things Are Special, by Catherine M. Harris

A boy and a dog

Some Things Are Special

Memories are made
Of little things
A touch, a word
Something left unsaid.

Some things in life
I wish could go on forever:
The smell of a new baby’s hair
Their first word,
First step.
So many memories.

Those are the big small things.

Other things,
Much more important
So soon forgotten,
Are the times between words
When we are who we are
And we do what we do
Because we do.

And somebody loves you for it.
Believe me.
They do.

It’s what you do in small things
That matters more than anything.

So long Wizard, we love you.
