Firm of body and of mind
He's the finest of the fine.
Wise, mature, assured, and charming
A rapier wit that's quite disarming
Doesn't readily suffer fools
But with friends, forgiveness rules.
Dedicated, understanding
Impatient, he can be demanding.
His integrity is without equal
He's unselfish, truthful, moral
Loves his family with all his heart
Devoted, faithful, funny, smart.
He's kind and brave, loving and sharing
Makes me laugh with frustrated swearing.
Patriotic to the very core
Honorable, wonderful, and so much more.
An incredible personality
Accepting of those less blessed than he.
Attractive (okay, gorgeous! *G*) talented, sincere
Encouraging, perceptive, and so very dear
He listens and cares and always extends
Compassion and support to his friends.
Strong, yet gentle, he's humorous
And always shares a smile with us.
Multi-talented, super-intelligent
Honest, generous, magnificent!
He's everything a man should be
Respectful, likable, and oh, so sweet
Ambitious but considerate
Sensitive and passionate.
This may not have 50 compliments
But each day I know he's heaven sent
To brighten my life and so I send
Birthday greetings to my best friend.

Happy Birthday, sweetie.... SMOOCH!

In other words, Ruth, you think he's an ok guy?? I hate it when you beat around the bush!!!

We all don't have the pleasure of knowing him as well as you, but I have no doubt every word you say is true. It's an honor being an ARCH-rival to a TOE! Geez, we should open a shoe store or something!

It's a wonderful poem, Suthern, to an equally deserving man. Thank you

Suthern,
    You took the words right out of my mouth. I should say, the thoughts right out of my head, for I couldn't have written as beautifully as you have.
A wonderful poem for a wonderful friend.
Happy birthday, God bless
Thanks Suthern, for the lovely poetry

Thanks, all... I did have to tone down my exalted opinion of him a bit.... just so you wouldn't think I was exaggerating! *G*
