Rose Colored Goggles (for Joe B)
Speaks slowly as if expectations are for you to savor every word
When he’s not too busy exercising his inherent talent for listening
To the ranting, venting and complaining of others.
The secret mystic patiently awaits his turn to react and advise Wisely his positive spin on whatever it is
I am self absorbedly going on on on and on and on about persistently like an ADD child demanding attention
Intuition and listening are his gifts yet unrecognized because of his
ASSociations with the mentally challenged or selfish, self absorbed people in his life.
He has answers but has learned through the years to wait to share them
We are not always ready for the answers
As you get to know and love him you realize he is human too
Moody, judgmental and self righteous like the rest of the world
Showing this side to only the closest of allies
We and or I accept this for all he has endoured with our friendship
Through years upon years
Relationship dynamics change as with all intelligent free thinkers and sometimes we grow apart and then grow back together stronger
A selfless man in actions sets the example I strive for.
Well grounded yet spiritual, mystical, creative and verbally expressive.
I call this man
I repeat man
As my best friend
And a major contributor to society and God’s world.
