A Salute to Dibs

Poem by: attanasio

Summary

Sometimes someone touches you and you want to say something nice but don't want to make them feel funny or awkward.

Then again, sometimes the urge to say it out weighs thier moment of awkwardness. This is one of those times.

Sorry if this embarrasses you Dibs but it makes me feel a lot better saying it. I know I speak for a lot of others here also!

A salute to Dibs

By: Joe Attanasio

 

 

 

A poet walks softly among us

He shies away if we make a fuss

A gentle caring responsible man

As a humanitarian he takes a stand

 

He makes time to read his friends

Never criticizes, always commends

His job is mentally draining

His wife, emotionally straining

 

He struggles to get his life back on track

He never asks that we cut him some slack

He stands before us, human and frail

His heart is the size of a whale

 

His two children caught up in the mess

Adds heavily to his everyday stress

His heart and soul his wife spurned

He reaches out, but nothing is returned

 

His sad/hurt side he usually hides

Positive humour to us he provides

I have read his comments to many others

He treats people like his sisters and brothers

 

He writes with kind words and wit

His relationships here are close knit

On his shoulders is a lot of weight

How he handles it is first rate

 

He always under plays his role

He is humble in his soul

He may be embarrassed to see these words

Rather look around or feed the birds

 

People love him because they know

In his writing his love does show

In my eyes he can stand erect

For this man I have so much respect

 

Only two months has Dibs been here

When he talks, so many hear

People put him in their heart

He impressed me from the start
