 It is so good to talk to you.

For you are one of just a few.

Although we sometimes don’t agree.

You always show respect for me.


You have a non-judgmental air.

And you always seem to care.

You show an interest so intense.

It’s genuine, with no pretence.


You listen to my tails of woe.

As if you’ve nowhere else to go.

You always seem to comprehend.

And act like you are my best friend.


I’ve tried to talk to other folk.

But wish my words I could revoke.

To talk to them is not the same.

With critical response and blame.


It’s so good to have discussions.

Without fear of repercussions.

As we have talked I think you know.

That talking’s helped our friendship grow.


When I am in your company.

I feel you have more empathy.

A natural propensity.

To listen with intensity.


I like to talk when you are there.

For you are never doctrinaire.

You always keep an open mind.

You’re never anything but kind.


You make me feel I’m not alone.

When we talk upon the phone.

Be it by email or by blog.

I love constructive dialogue.


I would like to congratulate.

The way that you communicate

I always feel you understand.

And with your words you hold my hand.


Through the troubled paths I tread.

I remember things you’ve said.

It may sound twee but it is true.

It’s been so good to talk to you.
