This poem that comes in the form of a letter from a writer to his wife has some lessons for both the writer and his wife. Hope you enjoy reading it.



Dear my lovely wife, friend and companion

In good and bad times

The womb to bear name of my bloodline

The word warriors to inhibit earth

The breast to nourish the minds that will pen the world

The fingers that will feed the minds that will think the world




I swear to be a devoted husband

Not just the head, but the leader and protector of our family

The chest that warms you at night

The touch that soothes your pain and the hands that feed our family


I will take the kids to school and out for weekends

With you I will be your helper and cherish you for who you are

In the parks we will walk hand in hand

In the shades you will rest on my shoulders


I will climb the highest mountain for you

I will dive the deepest trench for you

There is nothing I wouldn’t do for you


All I ask of you is….

You can clean my study but leave the books where they are

Please respect my reading and writing time

Please respect my time alone -For self reflection and renewal

You are all I need in this lonely, imaginary world

Filled with contagious imaginations

And countless fantasies


My dear wife,

I have nothing valuable to give you but a heart that is committed to loving you.....................




It is written

      That was so sentimental and romantic. I believe he has a few valuable things to give her and his heart is the most valuable thing.

      What great romantic missive for the wife. Is she a fantasy though in your imaginary world? I think, I lost myself in your lovely poem Mr. Pen :(

      I enjoyed this soothing piece. You are a passionate poet.

      Dear CrisSp,

      Mr. Pen certainly appreciates you getting lost in the jungle of imagination. I pretty sure he would be happy to lead you out of the world of imagination he so brought you into.

      Appreciate your comment.

      Kind regards

      First I have to say I loved it but next I have to say it made me chuckle. These phrases of love filled with prose and beauty and then, "All I ask of you is….You can clean my study but leave the books where they are"...not the romantic ending one would expect. Very imaginative for sure.

      Voted up, beautiful and interesting.

      Lovely. Simply lovely. I shall ponder these thoughts in my mind to one day pour out my love to that special man and to be the type of wife that will bring happiness and tranquility to our home.
