ODE TO MY MAN...by b. Malin

This one's for you Lover Man and for all we've been through...

I'd like to think that there will always be a Rainbow around the corner.

That Life will always be wonderful...and we so Healthy and Strong.

Oh, I know we have our "RAGES"...and Angry words are spoken.

And Some things should not be said...

Of which we are both so Guilty of.

But make up we do, with more than a Kiss or Two...

Many a Passionate Night is shared in our Bed.

With the Heat of our Bodies entwined.

We are far from the Perfect Pair.

But that's ok, I don't think we want to be.

I Love when we see a Shooting Star,

and "Silently" make a wish.

I Love when we walk along the Beach,

And are content in each others Silence.

And sometimes we find so much to say...

It simply Amazes me, because we spend,

So much of our Time together.

When we dine out, and I see couples eating in Silence,

Never looking or talking to one another...

I'm so glad we are us...Babbling away...

Like we haven't been together all day.

And so I raise my Glass to you My Love, in a Toast...

To your Honor, Your Love, and Your Respect,

Until the very End of our Time.

I'm so glad that there was a YOU for ME...

And I was Wise enough to see that...

And You were patient enough to wait... for Me.

Oh b, such beauty and such depth! Many wish they had what you have.

I, too, am blessed with a wonderful relationship. We were married 46 years ago. We are such good friends now. Such good friends and oh so in love.

I am happy for you.

I voted up and awesome.

Truckstop Sally, Thank you for enjoying especially the last few lines...they were very meaningful to me and so true.

Shygirl, you may not believe this now, but I do think, that one day you too will meet your soul mate...it is never too late...My Aunt was in her 70's when she met hers...my uncle has passed away when she was in her 60's... Her Soul mate was also in his 70's...they climbed Mountains together! Thanks for enjoying my poem.

Oh Pixienot, I'm so happy to see you back on Hub pages...from the hospital stay...I'll be by for a visit. Glad you too have a good friend and soul mate, how great is that!

Great tribute, good thing you appreciate your man and have taken the time to recognize that. We often get in our routines and don't stop to reflect on our mates and how much they mean to us. I wish I had done more of that before I lost my dear husband

b. that is just beautiful! just like you and your heart that you put so much into all of your writing. You are both so lucky to share all of that - and the reality of it all makes it all the more perfect. No fairy tale romance, just true, honest, and perfect within itself love. Thanks so much for sharing. Love and Peace my friend.

Oh Fossillady, I'm sorry for your loss...but I think he knew...you are a good person, and I'm sure he knew that you loved him... sometimes it's what we do, not always what we say. LOL.

Erin, thanks so much for your beautiful comments...Life is good! LOL...

Thanks Chspublish, and may it be good for all of us!
