I'm Not A... But I...

I’m not a virtuoso
But I will express my feelings from the start
I’m not an architect
But I will build a home around your heart
I’m not a connoisseur
But I know taste is much more than wealth
I’m not a sommelier
But I will raise a glass to your good health
I’m not a saint
But I have been touched by angels wings
I’m not a Scientist
But I have witnessed truth in many things
I’m not a preacher
But I know the right and wrong of my life
I’m not a failure
But I have known life and times of strife
I’m not a bon vivant
But I have lived inside laughter and love
I’m not a savior
But my faith is never below, only above

Wonderfully penned!

"I’m not an architect, But I will build a home around your heart" - Such a lovely line.
