A Good Book

If I could read about you
I would hope never to finish
the book.
There are so many facets
to explore as I peer into
the precious soul that is you.
There may be times
of discontent,
But they only lead to
A better you.
So proud am I
of all that you are
and have been.

Generosity and respect
have been well learned;
with these tools,
a life can be well built.
Love is also in great supply,
in that heart you wear so well.
We have taught each other.
you and I,
though patience
is something I still struggle with.
I want so much for you,
that I sometimes forget
to step back
and let you grow
in the sunshine
where I once stood.
