    I envy you because you are kind
    you generous nature and your ready smile
    makes everyone feel special…

    you draw the love because you give so much

    there are times I secretly dislike you
    your humility, is real…yet you have so much
    I know that I would be boastful and proud if
    blessed the way you are

    your character shows me what I wish to be

    I feel your spirit…and want to be near it

    How can you possess all this yet walk so softly
    among us?

    You have many lovers; and this too, I covet
    And to each one of us (yes, I am one), you give
    yourself with no hesitation

    And it’s always new…you make it easy
    just with your smile, just with your touch

    How can I accept your gifts, feel privileged
    and still envy you this much?

    Only a matter of time before the talents of seekers are expressed in the written word. Very nice.
