TITLE: For My Husband

For my husband, whom I love very much,
Iíve written this for you,
To let you know I love you lots
For all you are and do.

Youíve always worked so very hard
To feed and clothe us all.
Youíre hands are ever gentle
To soothe a childís fall.

The children say they love you too,
The times you be their steed,
The days you take them to the park,
Your every word and deed.

The clock is watched all afternoon,
Until your car we see.
I love it when, all tired and weary,
You still will cook the tea.

I guess it all comes down to this,
I just want you to know,
I want to spend my time with you.
Iíll follow where you go.

Itís good to sit and talk with you
At the end of a busy day,
Or just to sit in quietness,
And, I love it when you pray.

I love to share my life with you,
I always knew I would.
Treasured are the things weíve shared,
The tough times and the good.

Wonderful tribute to a husband.

This is beautiful. I wish I had come up with something like this for my husband. Wonderful.

Watching the clock until "his" car pulled in is what I missed the most when my husband died. And it is the time of day I again look forward to since I've remarried. You've captured those small, day by day moments in a marriage that make life very sweet. Nice job.
Kenn Allan05/26/07
This is just TOO sweet! *sniff* Any man should be proud to be cherished like this by the woman who matters most. I love it.
LaNaye Perkins05/26/07

This is a very nice poem I also see it as a wonderful metaphor for Jesus Christ I feel blessed to be "the bride of Christ"

Hi Esther, I wanted to stop by after I caught your brick... Beautiful tribute to your husband!
One thought for critique: watch your rhymes, some of them sound a bit forced.
Keep up the good work!
Rita Garcia05/30/07
A loving tribute!
David Butler 05/30/07
Wow! Feeling bad about the times I've failed as a hubby after reading that. Better not show this one to my wife! :-)
Joanne Sher 05/30/07
This is just lovely - what a wonderful tribute!
Betty Castleberry05/30/07
Sounds like you have a wonderful husband. He has a wonderful wife, too, for you to honor him this way. This is very sweet and nicely done.
