If I could have one wish to make
And know that it'd come true
I wouldn't hesitate a moment
To wish this wish for you.
I'd make your every memory
Bring smiles instead of sorrow.
Your only tears would be those of laughter
I'd fill your every tomorrow
With the joy you give so generously
With a conscience free of guilt
With the faith and trust to count on
The friendships you have built.
There isn't a night that I don't pray
That the Father up above
Grant peace to you and your great big heart
Fill your arms and life with love.
At Christmas time and always
I feel so very blessed
To be your friend. For you, dear man
Are the very best.

Merry Christmas, dear Toerag...

It's hard to read things like this....It's also quite "humbling" to read this.....but for those of you that don't know Suthern as I do, she's really one class act. Very few people are as caring and giving as this very fine lady. Moral, a heart the size of Texas, wisdom that is beyond compare, and a lady that seems to know no evil?..I know it's hard to believe that Toerag would not have enough adjectives or words in any situation to address something.....I guess the only thing I can come up with is; "None of you can imagine what a beautiful woman this is. No one can imagine the heart this lady has. Nobody knows....(not my x wife, my kids, my best "guy" buddies, knows me like she does. She knows things about me that nobody else on this earth knows. She knows my temper, my past, my problems, my lack of patience with assholes that mistreat ladies and kids, my problems with sticking my nose into things, my entire history that I've never told anyone.....and she still admires me?"....Now, I know she's blond, but she's very well educated....and she still has respect and admiration for me?.....Ya think I should have her teach Balladeer a thing or two?...If yall don't know Suthern...find a way to do so....there's few people left these days with a heart and soul like this lady has....Very few if any. She knows of things I'd never tell anyone....Why? Cuz she's so easy to talk to and she has a way of making you feel better......I'm honored and confused to know she feels this way about me.....yall just don't know me....not my history, which is extremely bad....I've done things that I will never ever forgive myself for...things that cause nightmares. This lady knows almost all....and can still write something like this?......(But of course, she is blonde yanno?)....Thanks dear....you're something else fersure.......

P.S......And just for you perverts like LongJohn and Balladeer?....None of this, hers or my response, is perpetuated by any inclination or motivation for sexual favors....Our relationship has been far and beyond such trivial needs.....not to say it may not happen in the future, and not to imply that I'm not a dirty old man cuz I am...but when ya become very good close friends first, and admire and respect each other first....sex is not the most important thing in a relationship for sure.....It's funny how age and maturity changes one's feelings for the opposite sex....It's not just an easy way into a bed....

I guess the only thing I have derrogatory to say about Ms. Suthern is; Her constant pursuit of putting herself down....and it's all a bunch of bull, believe me.

Sweet Toe... If you think my poor poem was humbling, you should see ME now... the blonde is speechless. For you know me better than anyone ever has... your friendship is the greatest gift I've ever received... and treasured with every breath I take. I didn't know men as fine as you existed... and nothing I've learned could ever diminish the respect and admiration I have for you... knowing you is a privilege!! Thank YOU!

I would cry if it were anyone other than Toe...seriously, suthern...this is a beautiful tribute and Toe deserves some humbling every so often.

Toe:  Keep your chin up buddy...you deserve a little praise and I can't think of anyone better to give it.  And we're not all perverts like Bal.

Thank you all very much for your kind responses! I didn't mean to ignore you... but Toe's words filled this heart (and these eyes! *G*) and gratitude for having him in my life captured all my thought processes. *G*

Pepper, Sven, Hoot and DA... Thank you very much... and second my wishes all you like! *G*

RSEvans: I'm not sure he deserves humbling. *G* But if the heartfelt praise he does deserve has that effect, he'd better be prepared! LOL.

RG: A RAT??? You have the nerve to call him a RAT????? LOL. How dast you!!! That's one renaming I will NOT accept... unless it's an acronym for Really Appreciated Toerag! *G*

Ah christmas - the time for tears...and smiles - this brought me near to tears and a great big grin - especially when I read Toe's response.

Suthern, a lovely poem you wrote for him.

Somehow into the comments of this wonderful poem and exchange between two people with great admiration for each other, in which I have not said one word or lifted one finger, Toe calls me a pervert (acceptable enough) and then RSEvans calls me a pervert? Would someone please point out the exit door to me?

I don't know how I missed this warm and wonderful exchange. It is a loving friendship of admiration and respect. Both of you are so fortunate to have this. Best wishes to you both

I hope you both get all you wish for.  This is a heartwarming exchange between two people who hold eachother in very high regard...and that's putting it mildly!!  I wish you well.

Suthern a great tribute to a great person! From a great person of course!

Darn you two, why don't you just get together?  HUH??

Toe, buddy ol' pal, we are our own worst critics. If God can forgive you buddy, then don't you think you should forgive yourself?
I think that would be a wise thing to do. I will pray for that. If you've found such a wonderful thing in eachother I hope both of you will grab hold of that and not let go!
