on the threshold of a dream
I've made some minor adaptations to this poem I wrote for Toe's birthday... (yeah, I know... some people actually BUY gifts! LOL.) and though it doesn't adequately describe my admiration for the man, it's a start! *G*
Talented treasure, tantalizing tease,
Thrusts and parries poems with ease,
Thief of my soul, on humor you thrive,
Tongue-fu master, best tush alive!
Terrific teacher, tavern visitor with flair,
Tarnisher of halos extraordinaire.
True and trustworthy, thoroughbred treat,
This tribute give thanks for a friend you cant beat!
Obedient one and only offers her own
Outstanding overachiever this little ode.
Observant, outrageous, always ornamental,
Occasionally offensive, often sentimental -
Ovations abound for your oral techniques.
Optical oasis, you’re a man at his peak.
Occupant of my heart, other half of my soul,
Only one could ever make me whole.
Energetic elegance, enemy of evil
Easygoing educator, earnest and ethical
Exultant eminence of epicurean delights
Enriches our ensemble, endeavors to enlighten
Envy of many, entertaining to all
Exemplary excellence, an emblem to extol
Eloquent, elusive, esteemed escort
Each day that passes, I’m enchanted more.
Rebuked rascal, a ravishing ray,
Roguish and rousing, sometimes risque’.
Revels in laughter, rambunctious reprobate,
Remarkable, responsive, altogether first rate.
Rare and romantic, revered, ready with rhyme,
Resplendent Renaissance man for all time.
Resourceful, reliable, held in highest regard,
Rescuer and refuge, life’s greatest reward.
Anguished angel agonizes still,
Avoids absolving yourself, perhaps always will.
Affectionate attitude we certainly appreciate,
Adamant advocate, accomplished athlete,
Attractive, audacious, aficionado of ale,
Admirers attempt your achievements to no avail.
Amusing, amazing, makes the ladies hearts flutter.
Adorable answer to a prayer unuttered.
Gallant gentleman, generous and good,
Garrulous Galahad, frequently misunderstood.
Gracious and graphic, gregarious gem,
Guffaws of gaiety are given at your whim.
Grand Dad not anxious to be a granddad,
Good-looking, giant-hearted, the best to be had.
God’s greatest gift, glorious to behold.
Gladdens my heart, genuine gold.
