You tell me, are you?

by JLR

Oh, you are such a compassionate being.
You've been told by many a fellow,
lass and lad also,
just how kind are you?

Oh, you are a lover of music,
But you surely, limit the genre
To a tight package for sure,
music lover, are you?

Oh, you are person quick to blush
but many wouldn't know because of your
ruddy complexion presenting a healthy reddish glow
such a blusher, are you?

Oh, you are always smiling a wide bright beam
showing a deep sense of calm and insight into a peace
which makes all around smile back.
Smiling chap, are you?

Oh, you are such an overachiever,
even retired your schedule so full
It's hard to keep up with all you want to do,
takes one to know one, are you?

Oh, you are free verse poet "want to be"
words fling forth and fall to a page

But words will continue to fall to the page.
