[The following poem was written a few months ago for a former work colleague and friend. My poetry writing and adventures in the world of WordPress had started to get a bit of attention from the people I was closest to. In an attempt to cheer me up during a rough patch a few of my friends had decided to try and write me a poem. They didn’t get very far but it did inspire a few poems of my own in reply. I had forgotten about this poem and only recently found it in an email attachment, but I felt it was worth posting if nothing more than as an ode to someone I no longer see but will always admire.]
You never seem to let life get you down
Smile of your face, very rarely a frown
A bundle of unbridled passion and light
I wish I had you spirit, you’re quite the delight!
You inspire those around you to be so much better
To everyone you meet, you’re an absolute treasure
You’re a pleasure to know and cheer me up when I’m sad
But I hope that these words don’t make your husband mad!
