The Best Things in Life

The best things in life are free
From the breeze to the leaves on trees
And the very air we breathe

No one owns the sun in the sky
The clouds drift freely
With no profit motive on their minds

A green-bellied fly
A hot day in July
Comes with no price tag in sight

The Earth extracts no toll
When we sit down or stroll

No one owns the land we use
Mother Nature lent herself to us
Without asking for a dime

The songbirds ask for no royalty
The crickets chirp without a wage
The humans speak without being paid

The love we give one another is free
So is the help when we’re in need

The best things in life are all around
Open your eyes and they’ll be found
