My Best Man, Mike...

Of all my friends throughout my life...
None could compare to Mike...
Our friendship began the day we met...
We were incredibly so much alike...

But Mike has always been smarter...
And a leader, second to none...
The epitome of a renaissance man...
He could teach Hemingway how to shoot a gun...

While always a voracious reader...
His knowledge of life always vast...
Not just the small important details...
But a connoisseur of all things past...

While he excels in most of life’s pleasures...
And enjoys the fruits of all his hard work...
He sets an example from which we all could learn...
Savoring a Blanton’s he would never shirk...

When it comes to knowing his Bourbon...
He is a cigar aficionado, too...
Always quick to share one of his prized Cubans...
And partake in telling a tale or two...

When it came time for me to take a bride...
There was no better man to stand...
For it was my best man and dear friend...
Who was quick to lend an honorable hand...

Though we live far away from each other...
In my thoughts and heart each day...
Is where my best man continues to stand...
And it will forever and ever be that way...
