Southern Gentlemen

There is a man with southern charm.
With his hand so gently, he took mine and placed it in safe keeping.
Two hearts sharing thoughts and stories,
Honestly, openly, and freely.
With no fear of judgement, no worries of being replaced,
He said, “I am who I am, and you are who you are.”
That was more than enough to keep a smile on my face.
A man both tender, but aggressive all the same.
Hard-working and blunt, with no doubt or shame.
Confident and true in who he is,
But willing to learn more each day.
Trying his best to provide in a simple kind of way,
He teaches me more than words can say.
And for that I am thankful.
