To My Wife - Poem by ken woodrum

I am so thankful
for our time and our years
but an emotional few weeks
broken hearts soaked in tears

This time we will spend
in 2 homes miles apart
will stitch up your wounds
and us a fresh start

A wife needs some kisses
not words laced with pain
give a hug and I LOVE YOU
don't be jealously insane

Listen to what she is saying
and hear things she's not
make sure she is important
she is the only wife you've got

I look ahead your returning
safely cuddled on my chest
my wife she's just perfect
thank God I was blessed.

I love you Sweetie, I can't wait to see you again!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I love my wife dearly were at a crossroads in our sixteen year marriage and were not together. On a sad evening in July I put a little poem together and pasted it on a picture of her favorite flower, the Calla Lily. She loved it, framed it, and hung it above her headboard. We are back together and this poem is displayed in our entry way for all our friends and family to see and enjoy as we do.
