A Romantic Poem About a Very Unromantic Valentine's Day: For My Hubby

Updated on February 15, 2013

No time for a date, but time for love

No fancy restaurants or fluffy, cutsie stuff

Instead a meal was ready when I came home

And for me, that was enough

(Oh my, how I’ve grown!)

Sure I would have made the meal differently

Okay, I didn’t finish all the food on my plate

Did I enjoy the fish stir-fry? Most certainly!

Because for me, he tried, a unique dish to create

No red cards with pink hearts

No flowers in a vase

But the hand-written love note was a fabulous start

And followed by chocolate kisses put a smile on my face

The evening didn’t end with romance and kisses

No candles burning to set the mood

But he cleaned the counters and washed the dishes

And made me some tea to wash down my food

A tight deadline was waiting—back to my laptop I was sent

It was not a magical evening for this lady and gent

But I must admit, that I am more than content

For true love remains, though the holiday came and went

A clean sink is my love language!
A clean sink is my love language!

      Beautiful poem. That's awesome that you were so grateful for the thoughtful things your husband did for you. My hubby bought me two bouquets of flowers and wrote a sweet card for me this Valentines Day (after I complained because he was whining about V-day being a lame holiday made up by the greeting card companies). Oh well, haha. He made me dinner once just because, which was very sweet. Anyway, thanks for your sweet and encouraging hubs :)

      @ MsDora: Thank you! Yes, as we continue to learn how to love each other better every day, we continue to love each other each in our own way. We are people living on two sides of a spectrum of personality and in many ways life--but where our differences threaten to separate us, our stronger common bond of love and choice brings us together. This phrase has saved us many times, "Not wrong--just different." And it is the space in between in which lies our capacity to grow!

      Thank you for the comment and the vote--I appreciate it!

      Love your attitude! "Contentment is great gain."Your man loves you and demonstrated it his way. You wrote a poem in tribute of his effort. This is the life some dream of. Voted Up!

      @ always exploring: Thank you! Yes, good men are hard to find! We are good for each other yet oh-so-different! God had a sense of humor when he set the two of us up. :-)

      This is great..I'd rather have a home-cooked meal than chocolates and roses, you can buy them, but a good man is hard to find...Lucky you..Loved it..Thank you..

      Thanks Erickdierker! Yes--true love is much deeper and long-lasting. Don't get me wrong, flowers and all the gifts are nice--but cannot replace the thing that holds a marriage together--true love! A couple can only go so far on a few nice dates and fancy gifts a few times a year. Thanks for the comment and the vote--I appreciate it!!!

      It was just a little different here, but not much. I bathed and kept our little up late, for mom all ready for bed. I voted an up, awesome and beautiful on this one. It captured true love rather than commercial love.
