My Wife: A Poem

My Wife: A Poem

 

There may be a few of you that may not remember me, I am SGT Wesley Cox. I am a mechanic in the Army and recently discovered through Hubpages that poetry was in my abilities. I often wonder if people are honest with me when they say, "Good Poem." I guess that is just my insecurities acting up. Really I wanted to put this piece in here because the ad that pops up ruined the natural flow of the poem so hopefully this little piece of whatever will fix that.

Someone once said

"All that we see or seem

Is but a dream within a dream."

 
 
 
 
 
 
My wife, she's my girl
She's important, my whole world
the love she gives is such a joy
I'm like a child again with a favorite toy
Her love is oh so grand
I am honored to be her man.
 
 
 
 
She started as the girl I fell in love with
and became the woman I now cherish.
Down the road of a never ending rhyme
I'd be happy spending all my time 
watching grass grow or paint dry
so long as she is by my side.
 
 
 
 
My job always takes me away
but I yearn for the day that I get to stay
Although we're miles apart
you reside so near to my heart.
Long ago this love we had found
I told you, "Soulmates we are" forever bound
 
 
 
 
Your lips, so succulent - so sweet
to gently kiss them I am silently entreating
A love so strong there is no retreating
Flutter of wings my heart is beating
from the smile you give upon meeting
This love will never be fleeting.
 
 
 
 
To be with you is all I need
joined far above by a force unseen
As I hold you secure in my arms
I become enchanted by your charms
Like the moon pulls the oceans to shore
to you I am pulled for evermore.
 
 
 
 
Of my heart, the chambers four
you, my love, own the very core
For you I so adore, adore our pure amour
Our love has never been a chore and from the rooftops I roar
"A love to end nevermore", nevermore will I close the door
On what it is I so adore, our love will last for evermore.
 
 
 
 
 
The End.

      Your love filled poem has brought tears to my eyes. I am not much of a poetry reader so I always begin reading a poem with the possibility in my mind that I will likely stop half way through, but I read until the end and was thoroughly touched. You have a very lucky wife. My favorite lines were "the love she gives is such a joy I'm like a child again with a favorite toy."

      Deborah;

      I'm quite sure your man loves and appreciates you very much. Sometimes us men are not that good at expressing the love or admiration we have for our women. Look for the small things and the words as they will give you the satisfaction you seek. Hope everything is good. Thank you for reading and enjoying the poem.

      Hi wesleycox

      Your wife is so lucky to have you. To feel that way about someone and to put it into words like that is so special.

      To have a love like that is what life is all about.

      Myownworld: Thank you so much for your words of praise. It is good to be back.

      PL: Thanks on the current poem, as for the requested poem ok. Couple questions though, how do you mean doesn't rhyme-like not at all, do you mean just random thoughts like the sky's blue, the tree's green. What's your definition of takes awhile to write cus they all take awhile to write just some while's are longer or shorter than others. E-mail me to clarify please.

      it actually made me cry.... there is nothing so wonderful as a man admitting to the world he loves his woman.... wonderful, now here is the but...

      I would love to read a poem written by you, about your love for her, that does not rhyme.... that takes a while to write..... that is deeper, go do it..... love as always Brenda xx

      Of course, it's not just a 'good poem,' it's lovely! And so lyrical too; almost lulls you with it's soothing rhythm. Good to have you back and love to both you and your wife...keep writing.. :)

      I've been meaning to come by and say hello and thank you, buddy, for all of that you've done. Although I'm late to responding, I'm not at all despondent to your kind words. It was great to hear from you and it's great to know and see that you're "back in action" here. Many thanks.

      I really enjoyed reading this, Wes. It really doesn't matter what others think of your work, so long as you are proud of it. This of course was very important for you to write and I'm sure that your loving wife was blown away to have received such a gift! Awesome stuff.

      It's good to see your back! Many happy returns.

      Dohn

      P.S. Great interview by the way!
