Husband Poems

Updated on July 30, 2012

"Many marriages would be better if the husband and the wife clearly understood that they are on the same side."
Zig Ziglar

"Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave. "
Martin Luther

"I blame my mother for my poor sex life. All she told me was 'the man goes on top and the woman underneath.' For three years my husband and I slept in bunk beds."
Joan Rivers

Poems for Your Husband

What Makes A Husband?

What makes a husband? What traits should one possess?

Should he compliment your hair or notice that new dress?

Shower you with lavish gifts, send flowers every day?

Never, ever argue and agree with what you say?

For me, he should be there whenever I am down,

Or surprise me once or twice with dinner on the town.

Smile at me that special way across a crowded place,

Know that there are certain times, when I just need my space.

Offer to make dinner when my day has been so long,

Ask me up for a dance when they play our song.

To sometimes be my lover but always be my friend,

To know deep within myself, he’s with me to the end.

To feel his arms around me and be safe and secure,

To never doubt what’s in his heart, to always feel so sure,

That his love is all for me and for me alone,

To always feel part of a pair even when I am alone.

All these things, I have right now, I know your love is true,

I could never ask for more than what I’ve found in you,

For I have found a husband who completes my life.

I am so extremely proud to call myself your wife.

My Husband…My Friend.

It’s amazing how the years go past, they just fly away,

To me, you look just like you did, on our wedding day.

Standing there so bold and strong, waiting just for me.

I couldn’t wait to begin our lives and start our family tree.

Luck smiled on us and gave us kids, each one a welcome gift,

And then and there, our little family boat was set adrift,

The seas were rough from time to time, we never did capsize,

We were beaten down but emerged a lot more wise.

And now the grandkids fill our lives with happiness and fun,

It’s almost seems at times we are right back where we begun,

They fill the house with laughter; I missed it when it went,

It reminds me of those days of old, the happy times we spent.

And to you my husband, who has shared the years with me,

May we have so many more, there’s lot still left to see,

Who can tell what’s in store like the turning of the tide,

I look forward now with pleasure because I have you by my side.

      Beautiful Poem, I wrote about my husband, but not a poem, I wrote about the miracle that he is.

      I hope that you will keep writing.
