Just a poem about my dear husband.

My Husband, My Love

by Becky Kern-Taylor

Do I think he loves me? Of course I know he does.
How can I be certain? I'll tell you, it's because.
He treats me with dignity..respects me every day.
Never tells me what to do..or tells me what to say.

When I have a day that isn't going very well.
He lifts up my spirits and helps my ego grow.
And he loves surprising me..he's really lots of fun.
I don't want a dozen he gives me one.

If I have a project..that turns out as a strain.
He will help me willingly..never does complain.
Since he has retired he finds..he loves the grocery store.
That makes me quite happy..I don't need another chore.

He sleeps in and that's just fine..I love some time alone.
I can spend it writing poems or talking on the phone.
He thinks sweeping carpets is a great activity.
That's another job that he does very happily.

When he first retired..he loved to work out in the yard.
Now that he is older..all that work is just to hard.
That's okay with doesn't make me shed some tears.
I want him to be around for many many years.

I have girlfriends that's just fine..we get together lots.
He has guy friends and he really loves to play the slots.
Church on Sunday is a must..we both agree on that.
And we're both Republicans..we don't vote Democrat.

We have things in we love to go to dances.
And we play the lottery..we take a couple chances.
We drive cars that we buy used..we never buy them new.
If our kids have problems we will always help them through.

Sensible describes us both..for that we're kind of proud.
And we don't feel comfortable surrounded by a crowd.
We're both very happy with our life..we're satisfied.
Everything has worked out well..we're very gratified.

But we know someday that we both will leave this home behind.
We know that there are even greener pastures we will find.
Then one of us will leave the other, that will be so hard.
But we will share eternity, in Heaven with Our Lord.
