I Cherish the smell of the earth after the first rain, the greenery, the trees and the chirping of the birds.
I Cherish a long walk with wandering thoughts.
A sip of a cool lemonade in the summer heat,
The aroma of a freshly baked cake.
I Cherish the music blasting in my ears as I let my mind dive into the beats without a care of the world.
The scraping of the pen on paper, the musky scent of an old book, a flower in full bloom.
A smiling face, a beautifully and aimless conversation. A hearty meal and infectious laughter.
The heat of a lover’s touch, the butterflies in the stomach.
The dazed eyes, the sharp intake of breath.
The realisation that you are in love, the heartbreaks the sad songs.
The meaning in the medleys, the sadness in the lyrics. The loneliness and the happiness.
I Cherish them all.
I Cherish the soft fur and the soft purr, that someone who makes me a bowl of steaming soup when I am down with cold or to have a cup of piping hot coffee while I drift off to the land of the fairies.
An act of kindness, an admission of love. The asking for advice and that unexpected hug.
I Cherish it all. I Cherish them all!
