A perfect gentleman friend at forty

Never did I meet a man so warm
Full of live and a sunny smile
Sweet like the Scottish cream
The perfect gentleman

Never did I meet a man so warm
With simple gestures and classy acts
Humble yet suave and full of charm
The perfect gentleman

Never did I meet a man so warm 
Who at forty has a heart younger than twenty
Elegant, soft yet firm
A perfect gentleman

Never did I meet a man so warm
Who has a kind word for every soul
And a heart so large, so warm
I could go on…

…But as you turn forty my friend
Remember life is just beginning
Laugh to your heart delights 
Drink the freshest of wines
Spend time with your kids and wife
Be merry, passionate and never stop loving…

A prayer for you…
May you last long like the Iroko Tree
Bringing warmth, love and happiness to-
Your Family and friends
Happy Fortieth Birthday Babafemi
My perfect gentleman friend and brother!

(This poem is dedicated to my colleague, friend and brother- Babafemi Aina on the Occassion of his 40th Birthday. I wish you many more years of success friend)
