word portrait

With my palette of paints I could paint a picture
with words I will try to convey my thoughts
she has an accent that reminds you she is Yorkshire
by birth, an attitude that follows the same route

you look into brown eyes that twinkle with mischief
a smile to rocket you into space
laughter like the tinkling of bells
knowledge that surpasses all others

this person is loved by all,
she loves everyone, she has her
disabilities, you would not know this
Always she greets me with a smile and a kiss

She will say Oh Sass when she sees this
Its not a dedication, its just words to convey
What a wonderful friend she is
Someone I look up to, wish she really was my sister

I will sing your song “ Mandy”  or better still let 
Barry Manilow sing it for me.
