Christmas Poem - MK

Your eyes are the Windows to Your Soul

When I look at you, I see a whole

Person of Heart, of Character, of Faith

Loyal you start, and loyal you stay

You are who you are, nothing fake to be had

I see where you get it - I know your Mom and your Dad

You grew up in beauty, from inside to out

Each time we talk, I learn more about

Your thoughts and your feelings, what goes on in your head

Occasionally, we share of a book we've both read

But whatever we say, and whatever we share

The bottom-line is, I know that you care

Legit, no pretensions, what you see is what you get

People have learned, to be with you, they must let

You be you, nothing more, that is all you request

You are not difficult, you are honestly the best

Big-hearted person, give the shirt off your back

People have hurt you, but you don't keep track

You keep going on, being true to yourself

When someone has hurt you, they go on a shelf

In a box, locked forever; you remember, but learn

That people are people, and you're going to get burned

But you go on, persevere, and you let others in

The odds are in your favor, you're going to win

When you lead with your Heart, pain is part of the deal

What cannot be taken away, is the FACT you are Real

I am so grateful and happy to have you in my life

Your first act was to invite me as you became a wife

I felt such a part, though I had to decline

I was excited, and honored, and happy to find

Acceptance, from all that I met in this crew

That's a rarity, and a gift found by only a few

I treasure our Friendship, and I always will

Even when I am old, and you are younger, still!!!
