All the things that made me smile,
All the things that made it worthwhile,
Your contagious laugh, when you crack yourself up,
2 sugars for you as you stir your cup.
All the amazing projects as you turn your hand,
To so many brilliant things, I didn’t understand.
You can fix, and paint and grow
So many things most people don’t know.
Your talents are many with so much success in between
And out in the garden your thumb is so green.
To be around you always made me look in awe, at so many things you do
So perfect and fulfilling, making so many things look new.
Your skill at picking colours, choosing and matching with such ease,
The end result always brilliant, with everyone so pleased.
Even in your work as you look and plan and measure
The guarantee an outcome that the customer will treasure.
The list of skills goes on and on
Your determination and focus always strong.
You give everything your full attention
Though one beautiful trait that does deserve a mention
Your ability to make people laugh, you really are so funny
To telling jokes and stories and always on the money.
Though, my favourite thing you do, is when you sit and strum a song,
So calming and so soothing, I find I hum or sing along.
You have so many skills inside
These skills are the essence of who you are ……
So use them all with Pride
