The Most Awesome People Are Hubbers !

Lets go on a windjammer for Christmas !
Lets go on a windjammer for Christmas !

I cannot begin to tell you all how much I have
learned about life from these beautiful people
The sharing you wont get in social club
a theatre or under a steeple

Hubbers are amazing I owe so many of you
a giant bear hug
We have grown together haven't we
you've given my old soul a tug

Oh and to name some of you wouldn't
be so fair or square
Because everyone I have met here
I would love simply on a dare

The kindest , the most honest .........I'd hold each of you
up for the world to see
Here ....... Here are the beautiful ones
giving away hublove for free

Oh and don't forget good looking too
my gosh all the pretty ladies
There are times for what I'm thinking
well.........I don't want to go to hades

Lets just say a handshake for the men
who write it all down
And a kiss and a hug for the ladies
when no ones around

No matter the season or the reason
a hubhugs my gift to you
I will remember you I promise
until my dieing day is through

Bless you all for what you give !

Your remembrance in also guaranteed

with laughs you provide, always make me pee,

or sentimental writing of your childhood days

your love for family shows in so many ways.

The hand shakes for the fella's

will surely be nice

the attention to the girls

full of sugar and spice

Happy to call you a hubbing friend

I'll hold your friendship dear till the very end.

Have a wonderful holiday.

What's that old saying? - "It takes one to know one!" Yes, you're the epitome of a great HubBuddy who gives supporting, complimentary responses to each of those of us you follow and actually - follow!

You're a treasure, my friend.

Hubhugs! ~ Nellieanna

I would like to think this is true, Ed, and for the most part it is - but with every bushel of apples you always get a few rotten ones .

But I love your sentiment here - you are sincerely and truly a cheerleader for the human race and your lovely heart is in the right poetic place here - yes the Hub really does bring people together from all over this planet and truly makes it a small and better world for writers and people alike - sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 7:05pm and your profile picture seems poorly lit - are you in the Witness protection program? lol

You have always stood out as a loving, caring hubber. A poet who reflects on his surroundings and his life. Many a tear and laughter have you brought to many of us here and I count you amongst one of my favorite poets in the Hubs. I may not always be around commenting on many of my followers great hubs, however I read as many as I can and share.

My hand is extened to you for that warm handshake and a hug would be very fitting as well. I wish you and yours a glorious, happy, loving and safe Festive Season my poet. Merry Christmas.

What a lovely sentiment you've shared here, Ed. A heartfelt tribute honoring friendship. I read your comment on Randi's hub about meeting up with Carol. It seems I've come to know some hubbers better than the people I grew up with-I think it's in the sharing, and have often thought it would be fun to have a meeting with some of the folks I've met.

Awesome poem, as usual. Have a joyful Christmas and New Year.
