if I were to give my definition
of an honest man,

you come to mind…
not because of any great thing
you do,

but because you do not fail to
speak from your heart

simply, yet stated with a force
so powerfully sincere,

no one can doubt your veracity

even people whose eyes fail to ‘see’

know there is no doubt that
they’ve been dealt with
‘honestly’


If I were to give my definition
of a loving father

you come to mind
not because there are no other
loving fathers

but because you exemplify
the caring and nurturing that
oft-times is attributed to
mothers

and I marvel at the beautiful
relationship-bond you enjoy
with your daughter

“stage daddy”, coach,
cheering squad , guidance counselor
lovingly wearing every hat

you come to mind whenever I think of that


If I were to give my definition of a good friend,

you come to mind
not because you have so many
friends,

but because your quiet eyes
reflect a soul
in need of one that’s true

who doesn’t necessarily think
like you’

your tendency toward caution
protects your tender heart

but when you allow someone
inside,
the miracles have no end

these are a few things that come to mind
when I think of you

my friend

Very Heart Touching

Alyce,

This is heartfelt...very heart felt poetry.
**************
but because your quiet eyes
reflect a soul
in need of one that’s true

who doesn’t necessarily think
like you’

your tendency toward caution
protects your tender heart

but when you allow someone
inside,
the miracles have no end
***************

This reminds me of a friend of mine who is not married...yet.
He's a great guy, who is always reaching to the community in various ways.

This poem is beautiful.
