My Husband - Poem by Patricia Kelley
My husband has two long lean legs.
He's neatly woven from Heaven's threads.
He has arms' as strong as a pitcher's.
Aiming and hitting his target.
He's as smart as a math teacher.
Taking the time to tutor our children,
He loves people.
He has the face drawn by and artist.
Capturing the many lines in his smiling face,
He isn't prejudice against race.
He has a sound mind as a preacher.
He's kind hearted.
He's more of a man than I have ever known.
When I look into his eyes', I see; sweet Heaven's grace.
He's blessed with a full head of hair.
The color gray stored from years of wisdom.
He treats his home as his honored kingdom.
When our children see him, they run to him.
As a refreshing water-well, filling their cups to the rim,
They drink from the cup of his poured wisdom.
To you, he's just a man.
To us, he's the strong strength from God that makes us a home.
When I wake up in the morning with a kiss from his lips,
I feel Heaven's many blessings.
And, I say, I am blessed to be married to such a man.
My children are blessed to call him father.
This is the man that I'm proud to say, is my husband.
Happy Valentine's Day!
I love you, Brian Kelley!
Your loving wife,
