FRIENDS

My other half is fantastic, makes friends so easy,
just flashes a smile and their heart will melt;
I'm more reserved, I'll give you many adjectives:
manipulative, devious, strange, full of superlatives.

Let's have some positives: artistic, attractive,
attentive, good listener ( although I'm told: 'Get your hearing fixed' ),
he's bright, must have been good looking, so long
although I'm told that sometimes I get things wrong.

I enjoy reading to my friends, although madame
says I'm not very good at that either, oh well,
as long as I give someone some enjoyment,
I'll be pleased, bouyant, at home with contentment.

I was away for many years - they spoke about humour,
they said I was good - it must have been just a rumour.
