An Ordinary Man - Poem by Mary Ann Malone

This man I love so very much
Is really a special breed
He's just an ordinary man
But one with a special need

A special need to love and be loved
To show someone he cares
And have that someone show him too
They have a love to share

He's kind and gentle in a tender way
Understanding the dreams that I choose
But he's just an ordinary man
Someone I don't want to lose

He's a hard working honest man
There's so much he wants for me
And he'll give all he can give
Yet there is much more to be

The children we have reflect so much
This man that I call mine
For in their faces I can see
Our love every time

But he's just on ordinary man
He'll never be rich famous or rare
That's all right with me
I love him he knows I care
