You know what?
There is something about you that’s larger than life
Please this ain’t a rude joke
It’s your ampleness from every which way
It could be your laughter, your gesticulations, your embellishments, tattoo , nose poke…
And yet in some odd way
A very hidden — odd way
I see a glimmer of a quiet
A quiet you know will grow and grow and grow
It will, I know
I know, oho.
Your quest as the romantic
It’s true. It’s authentic.
Your strife for the beautiful moments
It’s beautiful because it is infectious and proves your non-self sense
Your passion for perfect grammar
Not just for your self but for others
Appa! What brilliance.
These are some sweet things about you
That makes me rejoice, not because it’s a nice-to-know
But because given that you are a significant person
In this whole business of creation
I award a grade for that — 4/4 !
Honestly, the world needs people like you more and more. 🙂
