Oh, to be half of a Solomon
And know half of what he knew,
But I know I’m not and know that I can’t
I will just have to rely on him.
A worthy woman who can find,
(I know I have found mine.)
For her price is far above rubies.
(That is why mine loves red, and other bright colors too.)
The heart of her husband trusts in her.
(Even as I can trust in mine.
She comes and goes, in and out
But I know she is ever mine.)
She doeth him good and not evil
(Is there anything better than that?)
All the days of her life.
(What a grand future to look forward to.)
She works willingly with her hands.
(I can see this all around
With house and home and everything
Well kept, organized, and neat.)
She rises also while it is yet night
(Yes, this is her all right.)
And gives food to her household.
(Yes, there in my bowl of raisin bran.)
She knoweth that her merchandise is profitable.
(She know what she has that is valuable
And this is her teaching and administrative skills,
So it is this that she markets.)
She reaches forth her hands to the needy.
(She gives herself in many ways
To help those children in need but
It also seems there is an army to feed.)
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
(What else should she ever wear?)
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
(She doesn't worry) but laughs at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom, faithful instruction.
(Stop! Listen! Do you hear the wisdom there?)
She watches over the affairs of her household.
(Even those who have left the nest.)
Her children arise and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her.
Many women do noble things,
But you surpass them all.

Your special lady is truly blessed to have a poem written about her based on the Bible in Proverbs 31.
You are especially favored by the Lord for:
"He who finds a wife finds what is good
and receives favor from the Lord."
It is a wonderful thing to see a man praise God for his wife in today's world where there are broken marriages littered across every culture. Keep up the good work!
