“Gratitude,” he murmured, “is a synonym for thank you,”
My human dictionary,
The words that he knew and my mind they blew!
The conversations were just bliss
When an introvert meets an intriguing extrovert
Grown in by his passion for music
And entertaining was his humour which I adored
In his company, I was never bored.
His wit made him the most interesting person in the room,
I never thought he would desire more than our amity.
My only regret is denying myself the pleasure of knowing all of him,
Beyond just the exchange of books, ideas and tongue in cheek stories.
In essence, I would have loved to be his book,
With a couple of chapters, pages and words
