The Definition Of A Gentleman


Published: June 2015

The definition of a gentleman is clear to detect,
it's one of warmth love and respect.

When you're feeling low they will understand,
like they have the answers in the palm of their hands.

The kind words that are often spoken,
to their trust that is never broken.

To the warmth of their smile from the shake of their hand,
that says more than words ever can.

I'm not talking about pulling out chairs or opening doors,
it's the knowledge that you're never far from their thoughts. 

With wings of hope, they will always catch you,
if money was love, they'd make you richer.

I think we should learn to be just like these beautiful human beings.

They're from a generation that is becoming a great loss,
where simple things like manners had no cost.

So we should help this new generation and keep them from harm,
and teach them the definition of a gentleman is....Patrick McMahon
