lovely little wiseman how you grew on me
from the moment that i held you i felt the roots of your tree,
from a little seedling your branches they did grow, reaching out to everyone
to touch their lives in turn,
In your eyes great secrets, held behind your silent voice.
Love and understanding, your purpose and your choice.
Friendship older than time, you trusted with a stranger that was me.
What a gift you gave me, what a gift to have!
i cherished the little seedling that also grew with me
We found our wisdom together you and i,
lovely little wiseman, it was your time to die.
Time on this Earth is so short for the like of you, yet
many is the year before i can leave this shell, lovely
little wise man i loved you so well. You were part of my life!
Your years not enough. Not enough for me.
In the passing of the age that you shared here, you were wizer by far than me
,in my whole lifetime i will never have what you had,
Neither ability nor grace enough to love in the way that you did,
giving the essence of your very soul
trusting in me so completely.
You looked to me and i looked to you for your strength,
you inner well of giving of yourself.
The wisdom in your gaze as your roots entwined with mine,
A look older than both you or i could know passed between us each of these times.
Thankyou for your friendship, thankyou for your time
Thankyou for being there for me all through these years.
Never was there a second or a moment when hate flashed in your eyes,
nor jealousy, nor anything ugly.
Always understanding and love, so much loyalty
Lovely little wiseman who shared his life with me
,Forever, i am humbled by this gift..
